Dr Hoang is currently working with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Australia as a Senior Physiotherapist Consultant and at NeuRA as a Senior Research Officer. These positions provide him with an ideal situation for his research interests which focus on both basic science and applied science. In basic science, he has developed a non-invasive method to measure passive properties of muscles. The method, known as ‘Hoang’s method’ in the literature, has been established and applied to investigate muscle properties and the effects of interventions in neurological populations such as MS, spinal cord injury and stroke survivors. In applied science, he is working on interventions that may reduce ankle contractures in people with MS and reduce accidental falls in MS.
