  • Future systems for remote health care 

    Brownsell, S. J.; Williams, G.; Bradley, David A.; Bragg, R.; Catlin, P.; Carlier, J. (Royal Society of Medicine Press, 1999-07)
    As the number of elderly people in society increases, the use of technology to support the care system is being examined. However, there is no agreed model of a technology-based health-care system that fully integrates the ...
  • Gait abnormalities of above knee amputees during late swing phase, is it a design deficiency or compensatory strategy? 

    Abouhossein, A.; Awad, M. I.; Crisp, C.; Dehghani-Sanij, A. A.; Messenger, N.; Stewart, T. D.; Querin, O. M.; Richardson, R.; Bradley, David A. (Springer, 2016-10-13)
