Biomechanics Research Group
Making positive changes to people's lives
We are working towards excellence in fundamental research, leading to applications in clinical and sport and exercise biomechanics through collaboration locally, nationally and internationally.
Our research makes positive changes to the lives of people of all ages and physical abilities. Our multidisciplinary approach means that when you work with us you will be supported by specially selected expert academics within the field. The University provides a comprehensive internal and external research network including the Faculty of Engineering and Technology Research Institute, the Department of Applied Mathematics and the Department of Computer Science to name a few.
