PhD student wins rehabilitation research prize
Cameron Lindsay, a PhD student with Professor Anand Pandyan from the School of Health and Rehabilitation and the Research Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine, has been awarded the Verna Wright Prize for 2015 from the Society for Research in Rehabilitation.
Cameron's PhD is aimed at developing a new approach to the management of spasticity in the very severely disabled stroke patient. The trial will show whether the early use of botulinum toxin is effective in preventing contractures in these patients, and therefore increasing the potential for recovery. In this poster Cameron presented results showing that there are no clinically significant detrimental effects associated with the treatment. This project was funded by the NIHR Research for Patient Benefit Programme and Allergan plc.
