Research Interests

My research focus covers a wide range of areas based around assessment and enhancement of human performance.  There are 3 strands to this programme of research:

 

1.        Development and evaluation of wearable motion sensor applications for sport and health.  Projects include…

a.        Developed a novel plastic optical fiber sensor for measurement and control of spinal posture in the workplace.  I

b.        Use of inertial sensors to develop therapeutic exergaming applications for sports rehabilitation (currently in clinical testing phase)

c.        Design and field testing of custom measurement and feedback solutions for sports performance enhancement. 

2.        Design and validation of novel electrical muscle stimulation technologies.  Applications include EMS solutions for …

a.        Stress urinary incontinence

b.        Obesity

c.        Chronic low back pain

d.        Heart failure.

3.        Identification of causes of and optimal intervention strategies for recurrent musculoskeletal injuries such as patellofemoral pain and ankle instability.  In this work we have identified the motor control deficit that is associated with dysfunctional control of ankle stability during dynamic loading activities and have evaluated the impact of various intervention strategies on this control.
