  Applying AI to quantifying gait and joint loading in a mouse model for knee osteoarthritis using biplanar X-Ray videography, machine learning and force recordings
  Dr K D'Aout, Dr Y Zheng, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 10 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disease leading to impaired function and changes in gait. Several mouse models for OA exist, but exactly how gait and joint function is affected by the disease in these models is unknown.
  Bioinspired stealthy hexapod gait pattern
  Dr S Oberst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topic. Analysis of termite vibration signatures to innovate stealthy hexapod gait pattern. This project will sit with the. - School of Software.
  Development of biomechanically musculoskeletal models and its application in understanding of ageing process for health
  Dr W Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ageing process in health is one of main research topics currently and in the near future. The key icon for ageing in health is daily movements, e.g.walking.
  Developing a wearable neural prosthetic for management of knee osteoarthritis
  Dr E Shahabpoor Ardakani
Application Deadline: 16 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In knee osteoarthritis, the joint cartilage wears away and the bones of the joints rub more closely against one another, resulting in pain, swelling, stiffness, decreased ability to move and, sometimes, the formation of bone spurs.
  PhD in "Biomechanics and biomedical engineering in reconstructive foot & ankle surgery”
  Dr P Zioupos, Dr S Junaid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three year EPSRC Doctoral training Partnership Postgraduate studentship, supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to be undertaken within the Biomedical Engineering Research Unit at Aston University and the Forensics Biomechanics Laboratory in Cranfield University.
  Understanding the functional and mechanical implications on the lower limb of partial foot amputation in people with vascular disease
  Prof a McGregor, Mr J Shalhoub
Application Deadline: 27 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amputation due to both vascular disease and diabetes results from a combination of lack of sensory perception in the feet and a poor capacity for wounds to heal.
  Developing an autonomous adaptable exercise machine for falls prevention
  Dr E Shahabpoor Ardakani
Application Deadline: 16 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Falls in ageing population is a global challenge. One in three people over 65 fall each year, rising to one in two for adults over 80.
  (MRC CASE) Analysis of Advanced Motion Kinetics and Kinematics, Correlated with Proteomic Approach to Biological Assessment of the Joint to Develop Optimised Personalised Knee Arthroplasty Surgery and Rehabilitation
  Ms L Biant, Prof T Freemont, Dr C Milner
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project runs at the interface of biomedical engineering, cell biology and clinical orthopaedic surgery. It is a directly translatable project that allows the student to develop skills applicable to a variety of disciplines and also experience with patient interaction.
  Developing a wearable soft robot for assisted motion and falls prevention
  Dr E Shahabpoor Ardakani
Application Deadline: 16 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Assistive technologies have immense unexploited potential to help aging population to remain mobile and independent for longer. This project aims at developing a novel wearable soft lower-limb robot for aging population.
