About UCLAN:
The Department of Allied Health Professions (DAHP) was founded within
the Faculty of Health in 2003 and is located in the a new, state of the
art Building. Allied Health Professions at UCLan has under gone
considerable growth since 2003, through both the introduction of new
staff and the development of new facilities.
The Allied Health Professions research strategy aims to focus the
departments' contributions to the Faculty of Health and University
research outputs. One of the major strengths of the department is the
focus on inter-professional work. By having an applied
inter-professional approach there are direct parallels with the 'real
world' of allied health work, as it takes place in practice; this
facilitates knowledge transfer to the clinical setting.
The Movement Analysis Laboratory at UCLan is one of the top facilities
of its type currently in use in Europe. The lab currently houses a ten
camera Qualisys movement analysis system, four AMTI force plates, eight
channels Biopac electromyography, eight channels DelSys
electromyography, electrogoniometry and accelerometry. There are also a
number of custom made pieces of equipment used in the lab that have been
developed with commercial partners.
