Personal profile

Biography

My research interests include the improvement of health and well-being of the elderly through age-appropriate exercise, falls prevention for the elderly, postural seating comfort for automobiles, learning and teaching of dance through visualisation of movement and injury prevention/performance improvement for sports men and women.

Research Interests

Biomechanics; Rehabilitation; Whole-body muscle modelling; Injury prevention within sport; Age-appropriate exercise for the older person

Vision Statement

Biomechanics enables the analysis of whole-body human movement. Research encompasses many disciplines including health, sports, engineering, ergonomics and industrial applications.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the persons scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
