University of Salford
Professor Richard Jones leads the Knee Biomechanics and Injury research theme at the University of Salford and is also the Biomechanics research lead at the Manchester Institute for Health and Performance (MIHP). Richard has authored over 100 research papers in the fields of footwear, orthoses, pathological and healthy gait, musculoskeletal and neurological disorders. Richard is a member of the Versus Arthritis Musculoskeletal Disorders Research Advisory Group and is internationally recognised in the field of knee osteoarthritis. Richard has been utilising motion capture for the past 25 years ensuring that the biomechanical information gained has clinical applications. Within his role at the Manchester Institute of Health and Performance (MIHP), Richard leads on return to activity and sport biomechanical assessments ensuring that biomechanical outcomes are inputted back to the clinical teams to ensure mitigation of future risk and post-traumatic degenerative conditions.
Dr Mark King is a Professor of Sports Biomechanics in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, Loughborough University investigating optimum performance and minimising injury risk across a broad range of sports including gymnastics, cricket, athletics, badminton, swimming and tennis. In Cricket Mark has collaborated with the England and Wales Cricket Board for nearly 20 years covering a broad range of cricket areas from power hitting in batting and optimal performance in spin bowling through to optimal pitch length for junior cricketers and optimising fast bowling performance / minimising injury risk. Mark has a breadth of experience with international groups; Chair of the International Society of Biomechanics Technical Group on Computer Simulation for eight years, Director of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports, Director of Badminton England, an invited member of Badminton World Federation’s Injury Prevention Working Group and International Cricket Council’s Bowling Legality Group.
Institute for Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, Bosnia and Hercegovina
Dr Samra Pjanic is a PRM specialist and has worked in the Institute for physical and rehabilitation medicine „dr Miroslav Zotovic“ in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Hercegovina since 2011. Her work is focused on the treatment of pediatric patients, especially children with spinal deformities. She completed numerous educations regarding scoliosis treatment options: PSSE (Schroth and SEAS therapy) and bracing (Cheneau and Sforzesco brace). According to SOSORT guidelines, she is considered to be an expert in conservative scoliosis management. In 2020 she became the first international ISST instructor for physicians. She is also a member of ISST and ScoSym board. In 2022 she completed a PhD in Physical and rehabilitation medicine. Her doctoral research investigated the effects of Cheneau Sobernheim brace in the conservative treatment of idiopathic scoliosis.
Evelina Children’s Hospital, London
Adam is the consultant clinical scientist at the One Small Step Gait Laboratory (since 1998) and Reader in Clinical Biomechanics at King’s College London (since 2017). His team were the first to use 2D and 3D ultrasound to evaluate musculoskeletal pathology in children and young people with cerebral palsy. At the One Small Step Gait Lab at Guy’s Hospital, we incorporate ultrasound routinely to measure muscle volume and to evaluate muscle quality in our patients to inform our clinical reports. Adam has approaching 100 peer-reviewed full research articles, multiple book chapters and has recently co-authored a book in the musculoskeletal system in cerebral palsy. Adam is also the programme director for the MSc Clinical Sciences (Engineering) at King’s.
Ilias Theodorakos received his MEng in Applied Mathematical and Physics Science from National Technical University of Athens, Greece in 2011 and his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Aalborg University, Denmark, in 2017. The topic of his thesis was the internal and external passive stabilizers of the ankle joint complex. During his doctoral research he evaluated the influence of ankle ligaments and braces on the ankle joint kinematics and kinetics. Later, he joined IFSTTAR in Lyon, France as postdoctoral researcher to address sitting biomechanics related questions. He has been a postdoctoral researcher with the department of Materials and Production, Aalborg University since 2021. He is currently involved in the design of subject specific knee implants optimized to provide post operative knee stability and the development of experimental and computational procedures for the acquisition of noninvasive, in vivo knee laxity measurements. His research interests include the design and evaluation of interventions for improving people’s quality of life and the development of methodologies for accurate and noninvasive in vivo measurements.
