Well, I didn’t get much more interest originally from anyone other than you and I…however, I know you sent me some reviews/suggestions that I would still like to share…and, considering the ‘stay at home’ period we have moved into, now might be a good time to try and so something with this idea again. It would fit in well with people doing more home-based activities in the evenings etc and the suggestion of reading material might be calming for some people, and a good exercise for the old intellect as well!
I think I will resurrect the idea using your excellent suggestions to start with. Then also go back to my own. Thanks for the prompt.
Thanks for sharing this info, Chris. We will definitely follow updates on your website to keep up with what you are doing in GM. I love the animation you folks have put together!! I think it’s a really engaging and humorous way to get the message out about the Covenant work. We will flag this via our social media etc.
Great minds must think alike, Jim, as I was also just typing out a reply to Claire!
Thanks for getting in touch, Claire. I second Jim’s reply – if you have any links to your research or other work you’ve done then do feel free to share and we can help promote/tweet etc. We also accept guest blog posts if you’d like to advertise any aspects of your work a little more or gain support for anything else you are doing.
Natalie is a PhD student at Loughborough (UK University) and is conducting research into the use of feedback to improve lower limb amputee rehabilitation.
Natalie says, “I am currently recruiting male or female unilateral transtibial amputees (please see the attached poster for further information) to undertake one, five hour test protocol. The protocol consists of 20 minutes of both overground and treadmill walking at the participants chosen speed and some maximal muscular effort against a restraint whilst seated. As well as being a great opportunity for participants to help advance lower limb rehabilitation, all participants will receive a report of their walking characteristics.”
