Living with and caring for dementia : the effects of a novel intervention on quality of life in a case series (2021)
Thesis
Parkinson, S. R. (2021). Living with and caring for dementia : the effects of a novel intervention on quality of life in a case series. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4223430

Background: Dementia is associated with several modifiable risk factors including physical activity, cognitive stimulation, and social engagement. Caregiver burden is common among dementia carers and may be reduced with educational and emotional supp...

A biomechanical investigation of seated balance and upright mobility with a robotic exoskeleton in individuals with a spinal cord injury (2020)
Thesis
Hayes, S. C. (2020). A biomechanical investigation of seated balance and upright mobility with a robotic exoskeleton in individuals with a spinal cord injury. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4222965

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a complex medical condition with multiple sequelae. The level and severity of a lesion will determine the degree of disability and associated co- morbidities, the most obvious of which is paralysis. Other concomitant issue...

Quality of life and physical outcomes following an exercise intervention in individuals with a traumatic brain injury : a pilot study (2019)
Thesis
O'Carroll, G. C. (2019). Quality of life and physical outcomes following an exercise intervention in individuals with a traumatic brain injury : a pilot study. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4222570

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are becoming one of the leading causes of long-term disability worldwide, with more than 200,000 people attending emergency departments in the UK each year following a head injury. This creates immense strain on the ind... Read More about Quality of life and physical outcomes following an exercise intervention in individuals with a traumatic brain injury : a pilot study.

Adaptations in plantarflexor muscle-tendon properties and their impact on gait in claudicants with peripheral arterial disease (2015)
Thesis
King, S. (. L. (2015). Adaptations in plantarflexor muscle-tendon properties and their impact on gait in claudicants with peripheral arterial disease. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4218349

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a chronic atherosclerotic disease, primarily affecting the lower limbs. The associated intermittent claudication (IC) is a muscle pain/cramping sensation in the legs, primarily brought on by physical activity, suc...

Modelling of the human quiet stance with ankle joint complexity (2014)
Thesis
Ganguly, A. (2014). Modelling of the human quiet stance with ankle joint complexity. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4217159

This study derives an inverted pendulum model for quiet stance in humans around the ankle joints with 4×9-element mass-spring-damper (MSD) units as the musculoskeletal connections between the shank and foot bilaterally. The model focuses on the role... Read More about Modelling of the human quiet stance with ankle joint complexity.

Isokinetic muscular strength and performance in youth football : relationships with age, seasonal variation and injury (2012)
Thesis
Forbes, H. S. (2012). Isokinetic muscular strength and performance in youth football : relationships with age, seasonal variation and injury. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4214064

The primary aim of the current project was to investigate the isokinetic muscular strength and performance of elite male youth footballers, and the relationships with age, seasonal variation and injury. A secondary aim was to use the information gath... Read More about Isokinetic muscular strength and performance in youth football : relationships with age, seasonal variation and injury.

Biomechanics and quality of life in transtibial amputees during and following rehabilitation : a longitudinal study (2011)
Thesis
Barnett, C. T. (. T. (2011). Biomechanics and quality of life in transtibial amputees during and following rehabilitation : a longitudinal study. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4211375

Following surgery, amputees must re-learn how to perform various movement tasks using altered lower limb mechanics. In order to optimise the process of re-learning these tasks and inform rehabilitation practice, an understanding of the longitudinal a...
