  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).
  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.
  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.
  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.
