Dr Stephanie King's area of research expertise is in the movement patterns of clinical populations and the impact exercise interventions can have on these movements and the musculoskeletal system.
Both her MSc and PhD focused on those with Peripheral Arterial Disease and Intermittent Claudication (PAD-IC) in collaboration with the Academic Vascular Unit at Hull Royal Infirmary.
Her overarching interests are in how interventions can impact on both the mechanistic aspects of the way people move, as well as the holistic effects on quality of life in older adults and clinical populations.
Dr King welcomes applications in her specialist areas of research.
- Stephen Watson (PhD): Novel exercise interventions in patients with intermittent claudication
- Sam Dewsbury (MSc): Biomechanical changes in response to a home based strength and conditioning intervention in older adults
- Adam Fletcher (MSc): Optimal strategies for increasing hip flexor range of movement and gluteal activation, and their impact on lower body strength and power output
