  • The Movement Science Group (MSG) focuses on the development and implementation of new methodologies to measure, map and improve mobility of people of all ages with and without neurological conditions, in the community.

    The group has been involved in numerous studies in the development of new outcome measurements. Examples include, measuring rhythmic stepping for the identification of motor problems in children, identifying mobility patterns in a wide range of neurological conditions via movement and scanning of the brain using functional near infrared spectroscopy or magnetic resonance imaging.

    These are some of our key current projects:
