About Us

Our world-class interdisciplinary teams take novel health technologies from concept to commercialisation and clinical practice. Our work is leading to better, cost-effective treatments and improved quality of life for patients and their carers.

The Health Technologies USRG was one of the earliest ones - (you can read more about the historical development of our USRGs here) and has developed over the years into an active and vibrant group, attracting more and more members via its events and interactions. It was becoming apparent during 2014 that an affiliation with the University's Institute for Life Sciences (IfLS) made more and more sense, strategically and so that is how things have evolved. An exploration of the IfLS website will  lead you to more about our work.

Key facts

 An important component of  Rehabilitation work is research into the physiological and biomechanical mechanisms associated with normal and impaired function and recovery. This more fundamental research is applied to both the development and the evaluation of technologies.
