Can you take part in physiotherapy study?

The study is part of a PhD project that looks to develop a type of exercise called Blood-flow Restriction Training for use as a Physiotherapy treatment.

Interested staff members would be asked to attend four short appointments in the John Dalton building, to perform a simple leg exercise whilst the researcher applies different pressures to their thigh using a blood-pressure cuff. Their help will assist the researcher and other Physiotherapists to decide which cuff pressures may be appropriate to use with injured patients who need rehabilitation in future.

Eligible staff members would need to be in good general health and aged between 18 and 40. Further information about the study can be provided by contacting me at If you would need any more information to publish a news piece please let me know.

(Ethical approval for this study has been granted via the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care’s Research Ethics Committee. Application Reference 1269)
