Research Centre for Clinical Kinaesiology
The Research Centre for Clinical Kinaesiology (RCCK) is a well-equipped facility for biomechanical and physiological measurement. The lab is used for answering clinical questions predominantly in the area of rehabilitation. The three research areas are:
- Rehabilitation - measurement of efficacy, progression and outcome of acute and chronic conditions
- Promoting and maintaining a healthy active lifestyle
- Evaluation of healthcare service delivery and development of professional practice
The RCCK is a movement analysis laboratory which can be used to measure characteristics of any kind of human movement such as walking, jogging, sit-to-standing and standing balance for purposes of clinical rehabilitative research.
Research at the RCCK can be divided into four sub-themes: diabetic neuropathy, musculo-skeletal conditions, neurological conditions and respiratory conditions.
