The SSC is offering the opportunity for six-month internships with the Motion Analysis team, providing support in all matters related to research projects and service conducted on behalf of the clinic. Our 3D Biomechanics Assessment Laboratory sees over 500 ACL reconstruction patients and 800 athletic groin pain patients each year and is equipped with the latest motion capture technology to allow detailed examination of movements and forces, providing information to guide rehabilitation programmes and return-to-play decisions.
Biomechanics interns at the SSC are involved in all aspects of the motion analysis process, from preparing patients for data collection to assisting with the production of research outputs. You will gain experience in isokinetic testing, 3D optical motion capture, biomechanical models, data processing and the use of force plates. In addition, we encourage our interns to develop their research skills by contributing to research articles or abstracts. This is ideal preparation for any career in clinical and applied movement analysis, physical therapy, rehabilitation and/or sports performance analysis.
Please contact Dr. Katherine Daniels for further information.

We do not currently facilitate a transition year programme.
