Ankylosing Spondylitis and Work: A biomechanical approach to inform self-management programmes

Project: UK charity

Project Details


This project is in collaboration with the Royal Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases (RNHRD) and applies advanced biomechanical approaches, including cutting-edge
computer simulations, to enable us to quantify the physical load experienced by AS
patients with great accuracy. Through enabling for the first time an objective measure of disease in AS, this project will accurately inform self-management programme.
