There are 3 main areas of research: movement analysis: The Human Performance Laboratory is equipped to analyse many aspects of human movement; it contains dual-force plates linked to a 3-dimensional CODA analysis system, electromyography and isokinetic dynamometry; current research focuses on the analysis of sit-to-stand in relation to falls, and sit-to-walk, analysing forces and balance in subjects with knee pain, and the gait of children with cerebral palsy; chronic pain: applications for research into the management of chronic pain are welcome, both from the electro-physical modalities and the cognitive behavioural aspects; mobility and disability in chronic disease and the elderly: ongoing research includes balance and other therapeutic interventions in patients with long-term disease processes (vascular amputations, Parkinson�s disease, falls in the elderly) and management of problems associated with fibromyalgia.
