Full Profile

Graham was appointed as a research fellow in biomechanics within the Allied Health Research Unit in April 2019. Graham’s research interest focus on understanding the effects of musculoskeletal and neurological conditions on gait and how conservative treatments and/or surgical intervention help patients function. Graham’s research spans the use of 3D kinematics/kinetics of lower limb gait analysis through to multibody modelling of joint function. The aim of Graham’s research is to provide evidence-based outcomes which can be applied to within a clinical setting.
