Alison Rogers

I started in SHAR in summer 2016 and I am excited to be part of the enthusiastic and innovative team here. I have a clinical background in neuro-physiotherapy, especially working with acute neurosurgical patients and stroke patients. Since moving into academia I have completed my MSc and completed a PG Cert in Learning and Teaching. I have also embarked on a PhD entitled foot and ankle impairments affecting mobility in stroke (see following section for further information).

FAIMIS project: Foot and ankle impairments affecting mobility in stroke. Funded by Scholl Podiatric Fund (University of East London, UEL).

Aim:

1. To evaluate what qualitative perception stroke survivors have of foot and ankle impairments and how these impact on mobility and balance.

2. To establish the feasibility and reliability of quantifying foot and ankle impairments sch as range of motion, strength, plantar pressure analysis at the foot and ankle.

3. To identify foot and ankle impairments which predict mobility and balance outcomes following stroke and compare these with age and gender matched controls.

Description: 3 phase multicentred and multidisciplinary research project (UEL and University of Plymouth) now finished data collection and is now in data analysis and write up phase. Results are being collated for publication and conference presentation.

I currently teach on both UG and PG Physiotherapy and related programmes. This includes contributing to teaching neurological systems, injury and rehabilitation.

I am also a clinical link tutor for the Oswestry area. I am also Link Tutor for our Greek run programme in Athens.
