I am a PhD student in the Adelaide Spinal Research Group. My PhD project concerns cervical spine biomechanics. In this project, we are investigating human neck stiffness and range of motion across a wide age range. We will use this data to improve the biofidelity of a new patient simulator neck that is under development in our laboratory. The ultimate aim is to provide a patient simulator that provides improved clinical training in cervical spine immobilisation and a means to quantitatively evaluate effectiveness of immobilisation techniques and devices.
