Do you want to understand the mechanics of the human body? Biomechanics is fundamental to our assessment of all human activity and these Clinical Biomechanics awards bridge the divide between clinical practice and biomechanical principles, for a rigorous and tailored understanding of the subject.
Staffordshire University’s MSc in Clinical Biomechanics offers students a practical approach to exploring a wide range of biomechanical principles, with modules focusing on tissue stress, the origins and principles of biomechanics, gait analysis, spinal mechanics, sports injuries, podopaediatrics and therapies using biomechanical principles.
Our teaching team includes internationally respected practicing clinicians. All the awards provide flexible study with many modules offered at weekends and by online distance learning to allow practitioners to remain in full time work throughout.
Students have access to our fully equipped gait lab and will collect real-world data using equipment including a 20 camera Vicon system, a 3m pressure walkway and in-shoe system. Course members will also explore the use of EMG and Ultrasound for muscle testing, as well as applying theoretical concepts to clinical practice.
Staffordshire graduate Abbie Dagg says her experiences during her MSc in Clinical Podiatric Biomechanics have given her confidence in her own abilities as a health practitioner.
“I chose Staffordshire University and the MSc in Clinical Biomechanics in particular as it offers the best course in Podiatric Biomechanics led by some of the best lecturers in their field who have mountains of knowledge that they are happy to share,” says Abbie. “The MSc has provided a good grounding for my role and job providing me with skills and a sound knowledge base that I did not have prior to the Masters.”
Since graduating from Staffordshire University, Abbie, a Clinical Podiatric Lead in Rheumatology, has had two peer review papers published in The Journal of Wound Care and one additional paper in Wounds UK.
For Abbie, it is this recognition from her peers, in addition to invitations to present her work at professional conferences that she is most proud of.
But, she also says that she will never forget how she felt at her graduation ceremony at Trentham Gardens.
Abbie added: “Being the first to walk out of the tent and being greeted by a row of lectures who were all clapping a cheering, it was an absolutely fabulous way to finish a rather fantastic Master’s degree. It is one that I have very much enjoyed and missed since finishing.
“Studying at Staffordshire has given me the confidence to trust in my knowledge and abilities as a practitioner.”
Abbie is now focussed on her development in the field of ‘off-loading pressure in at risk foot’ and hopes to return to embark on a PhD.
