Background

Thesis title:

The effect of exercise interventions on non-linear gait variability in people with peripheral neuropathy

Supervisory Team

Dr Andrew Morrison
Dr Francesca Cavallerio
Dr Matthew Timmis

Summary of Research

Clare’s research combines qualitative and quantitative approaches to understand the effect of exercise intervention on peripheral neuropathy. This research seeks to understand the experience of people with diabetes, to reach a consensus on evidence-based approaches and to evaluate the effect of exercise intervention on non-linear gait variability and movement stability in people with peripheral neuropathy. Improving exercise intervention prescription should improve functional capacity, reduce diabetes symptoms and complications, and reduce mortality in people with diabetes.
