CURRENT PROJECTS

Adapting the Physiological Profile Assessment to assess upper limb function

This study will produce simple tests that can be used in population studies and patient group clinics. It will provide normative data for documenting the type and severity of upper limb Motor Impairments and provide the impetus to develop strategies to improve function in ageing and other disorders, such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis and peripheral neuropathy.

Comparison of cervical spine stiffness in individuals with chronic nonspecific neck pain and asymptomatic individuals.

Ingram LA, Snodgrass SJ, Rivett DA

To determine if spinal joint stiffness is different in individuals with nonspecific neck pain, and whether stiffness magnitude is associated with pain intensity and disability. These preliminary results suggest that cervical spine stiffness may be greater in the presence of nonspecific neck pain. However, judgments regarding pain intensity and level of disability should not be inferred from examinations of spinal joint stiffness.
