Engineering for health research
Our healthcare engineering covers a broad range of activities, from novel, leading edge medical device technologies and cell therapy manufacturing, to sports technology and human performance engineering interventions for paralympians and wearable robotics for healthcare applications. The research is cross disciplinary and translational in its approaches.
Activities we address include but are not limited to:
- Design simulation and manufacture of sporting goods
- Cell therapy manufacture
- Healthcare supply chain
- Manufacture for cell and tissue based therapies
- Human-robotic integration
- Process oriented cGMP research
Sports Technology Research Group
The group has an international reputation for the computer-aided design, simulation and manufacture of sporting goods.
Healthcare Engineering Research Group
The theme of this cross-disciplinary translational research group is the design, manufacture and exploitation of current and next generation medical technologies.
Mechanics of Advanced Materials Research Group
The group undertakes multi-disciplinary research into the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions, using a combination of analytical, numerical and experimental techniques.
Wearable Biorobotics Research Group
The group's objectives are the observation and the analysis of the human being, which can be seen as an extreme and exquisite example of robotic system.
Centre for Biological Engineering
A multi-disciplinary research centre, bridging the fields of engineering and biology.
Photonics Engineering and Health Technology Research Group
The Photonics Engineering and Health Technology Research Group conducts research into the use of light for sensing and characterisation of dynamic systems of industrial and biological origin.
