Dr Daniel Fong

Senior Lecturer in Rehabilitation Science

Daniel Fong is a Senior Lecturer in Rehabilitation Science who employs biomechanics and biomedical engineering technique in orthopaedic sports medicine research. While his main research interest is on sport-related ankle sprain injury, he also has considerable experience in research on prosthesis and orthotics design, rehabilitation equipment design, gait pattern of amputees, and biomechanics analysis in disabled sports performance.
