Rehabilitation Research Group
The Rehabilitation group is a cross-disciplinary research group incorporating members from the Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine and the Institute for Applied Clinical Sciences. The group brings together scientists and engineers with clinical researchers to tackle the physical limitations brought on by neuromuscular and skeletal disease, injury and ageing. Our goal is to facilitate improvement in functional ability to promote independence, participation and quality of life.
The group includes members from the Schools of Health & Rehabilitation and Mathematics & Computing, the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry, the Royal Stoke University Hospital and the Haywood Hospital.
- Investigation of the biomechanical and neurophysiological causes of functional limitation, and development of means to treat them.
- Development and assessment of assistive devices for the restoration of function and prevention of degenerative changes in long-term conditions.
- Development of mathematical and conceptual models for biomedical and rehabilitation engineering research.
