Ambreen is research active within the area of Rehabilitation Sciences and is a member of the Allied Health Research Unit.
Ambreen joined the Allied Health Research Unit in 2009 and is currently a Research Fellow in Biomechanics, with over 15 years of experience in the area of Biomechanics. Ambreen has an extensive track record in research output (over 50 peer reviewed articles/abstracts/conference papers) and independently funded collaborative work with small medium and larger companies. Her work has largely involved independent testing of products targeted to interact with the human body. Whilst the predominant focus of her work has centred around innovative advanced modelling techniques of spinal posture, management of posture and conservative management of musculoskeletal conditions and lymphoedema.
Ambreen has access to a diverse range of collaborators across the university, NHS, private practice, SME’s and other institutions. Some of the companies previously assisted have used this independent work to attain Prescription Pricing Approval or have extensively expanded their turnover through international sales using the evidence based marketing approach. Ambreen supervises a number of PhD and MSc by research students in the area of biomechanics and rehabilitations sciences from a variety of areas of expertise. With these unique collaborations it has been possible to tailor the approach to the company being assisted in order to maximise benefit to the client. In the last 10 years at UCLan Ambreen has been involved in securing over £240,000 both as PI and CI.
