Research at the AECC
Research at the AECC is a dynamic and important activity and aims to contribute new knowledge in the areas of experimental, clinical and educational research mainly centred on our expertise in musculoskeletal health.
As well as research undertaken by our own staff this also includes training future researchers, clinicians and academics through supporting Masters and Doctoral qualifications in association with other universities, institutions and business partners.
Research activity exists across broad areas of expertise including but not limited to imaging (MRI, ultrasound and videofluoroscopy), patient reported outcome measures (PROMs)
, assessment of movement and function, and clinical education. Our researchers regularly contribute peer reviewed publications and present at national and international conferences.
On this site you can find this research in our biennial Research Report,
and in lists of publications and poster presentations, which you can freely download or link to the original material.
This site also contains information on the Bournemouth Questionnaire and Patient Reported Outcome Measures, which are used to assess patient health outcomes in the routine clinical setting.
