A Research Fellow based in our Allied Health Professions Research Unit has been invited to present at a prestigious sports science conference.
Dr Steven Lindley will travel to Montenegro in early April for the 12th International Scientific Conference and 11th annual Congress of the Montenegrin Sports Academy.
The event will focus on current themes from all areas of sports science and sports medicine.
These include social sciences and humanities; physiology and sports medicine; and biomechanics and neuromuscular, all of which will offer delegates a forum for the latest research and applied insight into the respective disciplines.
Dr Lindley has spent several years investigating musculoskeletal conditions and the efficacy of various clinical and training interventions.
More recently he completed his doctoral work investigating the neuromuscular, biomechanical and clinical factors within Patellofemoral Pain; explicitly focusing on the motor unit control and joint stability strategies.
He also works as European Manager for Delsys Inc, a world leader in the design, manufacture, and marketing of a broad portfolio of high performance Electromyography instruments.
With a background from both clinical and research neuromuscular-biomechanics, his role includes customer education and application support, comprising of individual customer training along with international workshops and lectures.
Dr Lindley commented: "This is the first time I've been invited to present alone. I've previously worked at conferences with Professor Jim Richards, but this is a great opportunity to showcase my work on a solo basis.
"My workshop will offer clear and concise information on the use and application of Surface Electromyography, which offers unique insights into the complex mosaic of the neuromuscular system.
"This is a fantastic opportunity to develop possible future research collaborations at UCLan, both with postgraduate researchers and commercial companies based worldwide."
The event takes place 2-5 April at the University of Montenegro. For more information please click here.
