Professor Nachiappan Chockalingam

I have a multi and inter disciplinary research interest in the area of human performance measurement focussing on biomechanics and gait analysis with a special interest in foot and footwear biomechanics. I currently lead several research projects in the area of understanding the design, manufacture and clinical intervention using orthoses, including a large EU funded project on Diabetic Foot and Footwear looking at the development of an integrated system for foot assessment.
