  Accurate measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in adults with a spinal cord injury
  Dr D Bailey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research will be conducted with an industry partner to develop a device for accurate measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviour in adults with a spinal cord injury who use a manual wheelchair (those with paraplegia).
  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
  Exploring esports as a pedagogical tool for young people’s identity, culture and wellbeing development
  Dr C Kerner, Dr R Hings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing concern over the impact that young people’s engagement with digital technologies has on their well-being. The discussions surrounding young people’s uses of digital technologies are overwhelming underpinned by a dialogue associated with risk and negative consequences.
  Heat adaptation in older/elderly individuals
  Dr O Gibson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst traditionally heat adaptation has been a priority for athletes and occupational workers ahead of exposure to hot/hot-humid environments, forecast increases in the frequency and intensity of heat waves as a result of climate change means the general public is likely to be exposed to extreme environments as part of their daily life.
  Markers of Expertise in Sport and Physical Activity: Triangulated Approaches
  Dr D Broadbent, Dr D Bishop, Dr A Cocks, Dr A Nowicky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to adopt a mixed methods approach to determine the various factors – innate, learnt, and environmental – that ultimately contribute to skill acquisition and/or expertise within a specified domain.
  Reducing sedentary behaviour and increasing physical activity for the prevention and management of Type 2 diabetes
  Dr D Bailey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposed research will follow a process of intervention development and evaluation targeted at reducing and breaking up sitting time for the prevention and/or management of Type 2 diabetes.
  The gendered experience of body image in physical activity spaces
  Dr C Kerner, Dr L Hills, Dr A John
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing concern over young people’s body image and the detrimental impact that a negative body image can have on well-being, including physical activity participation.
  The impact of health and fitness social media on physical activity and body image in adolescents
  Dr C Kerner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 50% of young people engage with health and fitness content on social media (Crane et al., 2015). Young people’s engagement with health-related social media has been shown to impact their health-related knowledge and behaviours, such as physical activity, diet and mental health (Goodyear and Quennerstedt, 2019).
  Use of inertial sensors for fall prediction in older people
  Dr A Shaheen, Dr A Cocks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Falls in older people are a common cause of morbidity, mortality and loss of function. The physiological changes to the motor and sensory functions caused by ageing combined with the presence of other age-related diseases put this population at a high risk of falling.
