Physiotherapy Skills Laboratory

We have several hi-specification skills laboratories that are stocked with a vast range of equipment to help you develop your clinical skills.

The laboratories represent a realistic clinical environment which helps to socialise you to your future profession on a practical level. The labs provide a safe environment in which you can assimilate your theoretical knowledge into practical skills that you will continue to practice in your clinical placements.

These laboratories are each equipped with 12 plinths that offers space for small groups to practice hands on physiotherapy techniques. The laboratories have ceiling mounted cameras allowing the filming and recording of examinations and simulation sessions. The room is also equipped with anatomical joint models for student reference and learning.
