Human Biomechanics Research for Better Health Solutions

The Kedgley Biomechanics Lab is working to build our understanding of the mechanics of human upper limb in an effort to provide more efficient and effective methods of diagnosis and treatment for patients.

Research Overview

The Kedgley Biomechanics Lab employs a variety of in-vivo and in-vitro approaches to examine the effects of ageing and joint pathologies in the upper limb. These techniques include both experimental and computational methods, employing optical motion analysis, imaging, and experimental testing. We aim to work with clinicians to aid in the assessment of therapeutic interventions and the development of new techniques to promote early diagnosis of joint pathologies, leading to preventative rather than reactive treatment strategies.
