    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.
