What we do

Research in the Exercise Medicine and Health group has a focus on medical engineering, diabetes and children’s physical activity, fitness and health.

Our aim is to investigate the effect of physical activity and sedentary behaviour on physical and psychological health. This work spans from community to laboratory and from clinical to public health and health promotion settings.

We work with clinicians, engineers, economists, teachers, health and fitness professionals, dietitians and a range of other professionals to establish the dose response relationship between physical activity and health.
