This will cover how mechanical change occurs through internal (surgical) and external (conservative) management.
Case study data from different managements will be examined in the Movement Analysis Laboratory computer suit using advanced modelling techniques. This will allow the direct and indirect effects of the different managements to be explored by the students which will be adapted to fit the background of each student where possible.

Allied Health Professions with an interest in human movement
Professor Richards work includes the clinical application of biomechanics, the development of new assessment tools for chronic disease, conservative and surgical management of orthopaedic and neurological conditions, and development of evidence based approaches for improving clinical management and rehabilitation. The focus of Professor Richards work is to encourage inter-professional research and to develop direct parallels with research to the ‘real world’ of allied health work.
understand the how conservative and surgical management may be assess using Biomechanics
describe the mechanisms by which conservative and surgical management work
interpret the different biomechanical outcome measures when considering different types of movement
critically evaluate how these could be effective for the assessment of different clinical interventions
We have great links with employers including household names such as Sony, BAE Systems and Apple. We also have links with the smaller companies in the region and offer help and assistance to more than 1,000 of these – with many of our graduates staying in the region it is important we develop these relationships.
