Rachel is currently studying towards a doctorate focussed on exploring the effects of power assisted exercise following stroke. The title of the doctorate is ‘Power Assisted Exercise equipment is accessible for people with neurological changes and is reported to improve mobility, strength and wellbeing.’
Sheffield Neuro Physio are keen to improve access to exercise following neurological changes and this is supported by Rachel’s work in this area.
The PhD includes a co-design project to develop new software which will improve the power assisted exercise experience. Sheffield Neuro Physio promote user involvement in clinical research and design and welcome volunteers who enjoy taking part in innovative projects.
