Guest Status


I am an occupational therapist with an interest in self-directed interventions and the use of technology to support rehabilitation. I am currently a co-investigator on the WAVES study which is a multi-centre pilot study evaluating the feasibility of integrating a wrist worn device to prompt stroke patients to increase activity of their stroke arm. The WAVES study will form the basis of my PhD thesis which has a focus on the evaluation of self-directed arm interventions and how accelerometer data can be utilised to inform and guide therapeutic interventions.
