Over 2.7 million people in the United Kingdom suffer from a debilitating lack of hand function. The Kedgley Biomechanics Lab’s research focuses on ways that engineering can work with the clinical world to provide tools for early diagnosis and build solutions for the sufferers of upper limb disability.
Find out more about her research, about the wonderful group of people she works with, and how you can join in the work of the Kedgley Biomechanics Lab at Imperial College London.
Welcome to the Biomechanics Lab of Dr Angela Kedgley
Osteoarthritis (OA) costs the NHS £320 million per year, and makes simple tasks a struggle for so many of our neighbours.
The Kedgley Upper Limb Biomechanics Lab’s is searching for solutions.
Dr Angela Kedgley earned her PhD in mechanical engineering from the University of Western Ontario in 2009. She then worked as a Post Doctoral Fellow at the University of British Columbia before joining Imperial College in 2011, where she currently works as a Lecturer in Biomechanics in the Department of Bioengineering [Read More].
Collaboration is at the heart of good research. Dr Kedgley supervises a number of talented students, and has had the good fortune of working with some great researchers. Dr Kedgley routinely works with physiotherapists, surgeons, medical practitioners, and other engineers, and is actively seeking collaborators for future projects. [Read More].
Dr Kedgley’s research explores the biomechanics of the human upper limb. Her most recent work explores the causes and effects of osteoarthritis in the hand and wrist. She also has a keen interest in elbow and shoulder biomechanics, on which she has published widely. [Read More].
