University of East London

Course Introduction

This is a unique course, focusing on an increasingly sought'after aspect of podiatric care. We offer the only School of Podiatry in London, with superbly equipped teaching clinics and top'quality gait laboratories on its Stratford site. We're making a major contribution to evidence'based rehabilitation through our work with the Human Motor Performance Research Group (HMPG). This brings together a multi'disciplinary team of clinical scientists with backgrounds in physiotherapy, podiatry, neuroscience, biomechanical research, sports science and sociology. Examples of our work include a major, eight'year research project on the impact of haemophilia on young children, led by Professor Wendy Drechsler in collaboration with the Canterbury and Kent Haemophilia Centre. The research has shown that young haemophiliac children with a history of ankle joint bleeding have smaller, weaker muscles and walk differently to healthy children. The work has had a direct impact on clinical evaluation and the delivery of services across the country.
