I am interested in evaluating current clinical practice in the field of neurological physiotherapy.
I am currently running a project which will start to identify the usefulness of Lycra garments in patients with cerebellar ataxia. My MSc project investigated the ability of physiotherapists to predict the motor outcome of their neurologically impaired patients.
