Assistive Technology and Rehabilitation

Members of the Assistive Technology, Rehabilitation and Biomechanics group use biomechanical modelling and measurement to assess rehabilitation needs and design interventions across a range of conditions. Our clinical interests are mainly in neurological rehabilitation, spinal cord injury, spasticity and fracture management.

We have access to state-of-the-art facilities for movement analysis, biomechanics and exercise physiology in our labs on the Keele campus, the Royal Stoke University Hospital and the Orthotic Research and Locomotor Assessment Unit at RJAH hospital.

Members working in this area are also members of the cross-institute Rehabilitation Research Group, and lab updates can be found at our Research Gate Lab.
