The focus of this research group is the biomechanics of the lower limb. Our main focus is foot and ankle biomechanics and kinematic and mechanical compensations in the joints of the lower limb. The clinical applications on which we focus are the gait of children with cerebral palsy, running biomechanics, flatfoot, and osteoarthritis treatment.
We are located in the Botnar Research Centre in Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS) at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (NOC) in Headington, Oxford. We work closely with the Oxford Gait Laboratory at the NOC and with colleagues at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) and in the Department of Engineering Science in Parks Road, Oxford.
