My research focuses on improving the quality of life of people with long term conditions, particularly through exploration of the effectiveness of rehabilitative interventions. My research work, funded predominantly through the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, has capitalised on new innovations in sensor and digital technologies and involves interdisciplinary work, integrating clinical rehabilitation researchers with engineering, design, mecatronics, informatics and digital media specialists. This work has lead to a number of publications in the field of tele rehabilitation and the use of user-centred design in the development of innovative health technologies.
In 2008 I led the successful South Yorkshire application to become a National Institute of Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in applied Research and Care (CLARHC). This multi disciplinary innovation community is driven by the needs of people with long term conditions, undertaking applied research, capacity development and evidence implementation, identifying news ways of enabling the adoption and diffusion of evidence based practices and services through user-centred design methods and self management principles.
I am very excited about the potential that Lab4living has to help contribute to the engagement of people with chronic long term diseases in order to co design and co create innovative solutions to their health and social care needs.
