Research interests

My main research interests are focused on fundamental and applied studies in motor control in normal subjects and people with disabilities arising from trauma or disease affecting the central nervous system. I work closely with the Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit and currently we are participating in research to monitor (using electrophysiological measures) the changes in CNS function that occur in spinal cord injured patients in response to intensive locomotor re-training programmes.    In addition, research is ongoing to develop robust brain computer interfaces that can be used by severely disabled people to control assistive devices for mobility. This work is at a stage where we expect to translate promising laboratory studies on normal subjects to a patient population.

BTG: Location of the human hip joint centre using mathematical modelling techniques
Conway, Bernard A (Academic) Solomonidis, Stephanos (Academic) Kaklis, Panagiotis (Academic) Barrenechea, Gabriel (Academic)
Gait analysis is used for the evaluation of prosthetic/orthotic devices, orthopaedic implants, and for the treatment of various medical conditions. To study joint kinetics and kinematics during gait analysis, it is necessary that the position of the Hip Joint Centre (HJC) is determined as accurately as possible. It is difficult to obtain the exact location of the HJC as it is very deeply seated inside the body, surrounded by several layers of soft tissues. In this project we aim to develop a mathematical model to accurately predict the location of the HJC. We will also explore the use of ultrasonics for HJC location
