David’s research and teaching is primarily focused on rehabilitation biomechanics. More specifically:
- How is that individuals who use assistive technology – such as prostheses and orthoses – compensate during standing and walking to safely and effectively ambulate?
- Are there ways that we can make these movements more effective or safer?
- Are the methods in which we analyze movement effective in describing this in these individuals?
- Are there clinical measures we can use to identify individuals who are at increased risk of injury due to the way in which they move?
David collaborates nationally and internationally in his efforts to answer the above questions. Amongst others, this involves collaborations with:
- Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (Norway)
- Nottingham-Trent University (UK)
- University of Hull (UK).
David is a member of the following associations:
