Human Movement and Rehabilitation
The Centre for Human Movement and Rehabilitation delivers research addressing important health challenges which limit mobility, are associated with pain, and which can prevent people from living independently. The work encompasses rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases, long-term conditions, such as limb loss, diabetes and stroke, along with health states associated with ageing, such as frailty. The centre also has a strong focus on sport and exercise. The centre draws together disciplines, ranging from engineering and computational modelling through to health behaviour, social sciences and qualitative research. The centre plays a key role in training the research workforce of the future and houses the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in prosthetics and orthotics.
Within the centre are seven areas of key strength. Follow the links below to find out more about each theme and our Centre for Doctoral Training:
