Other Professional Roles

Total Motion Analysis

Total Motion Analysis is a screening and assessment tool I have developed, utilising digital video data. The concept is to allow qualitative and quantitative assessment of balance, gait and core stability in a format that is accessible to the general public, to athletes, and to those suffering recalcitrant injuries. It has been extremely useful in both the diagnosis of movement problems, and in patient education. In addition it has made objective assessment of the results of treatment and exercise intervention possible.
