Research into assistive technologies also features in the video.  This includes gait analysis, prosthetics and orthotics, which continue to make a marked difference in the health and wellbeing of patients around the world, along with the ground-breaking advances that our researchers are making in rehabilitation, biomedical and biomechanical research and diagnostic imaging.
