Professional biography

Advances in technology create new opportunities for small, light, powerful and inconspicuous wearable devices.

One of the key aims of my research is the design, development, testing and evaluation of a wearable device capable of monitoring gait and provide a haptic rhythmic cue to the person wearing it. This can then be used to assist with the gait rehabilitation and training of people who suffer from neurological conditions affecting their gait.

The title of my PhD is: "Rhythmic Haptic Cueing for Gait Rehabilitation of Hemiparetic Stroke and Brain Injury Survivors​" and is supervised by Dr Simon Holland and Prof. Janet van der Linden.
