Active Living

About us

This group aims to enable active living across the life span for healthy ageing, focussing on rehabilitation for people with musculoskeletal, neurological and respiratory conditions. Our interdisciplinary research involves close collaboration with colleagues in Engineering, Medicine, Primary Care, Psychology, and the Institute for Life Sciences.

Understanding the physiological and biomechanical mechanisms associated with normal and impaired function and recovery are key to achieving our objectives. Patient and public involvement (PPI) is central to all our research and ensures we continue to study what matters most to patients and our work translates to clinical practice.

Our three groups focus on:

ALT

Active Living Technologies
