Proud to partner with


University of Chichester

Our mission is to be a university community that inspires and enables individuals to exceed their expectations.  Our vision is that, by 2020, the University of Chichester will be internationally recognised as a beacon of good practice for high quality, student-centred higher education within a supportive community of learning.

The University is committed to undertaking and supporting research as an integral part of its provision and for its contribution to our standing as an institution that delivers high quality teaching. It celebrates the breadth and diversity of research at the University some which will be recognised in the sector as being of an international quality.  The University adopts the widely recognised definition of research as ‘original investigation undertaken in order to gain knowledge and understanding’ and embraces basic, applied, practice and professional based approaches to research.

Sports Biomechanics

Drawing from principles of ergonomics, physics and engineering, biomechanics is concerned with technique analysis, adaptation, assessment, rehabilitation and design of sports equipment. Depending on the level of service required, our biomechanics experts can also perform more clinical applications of gait analysis and podiatry.

Human Movement Analysis

Whether an individual athlete or a team, we can use our expertise to assess any problems or questions you may have with your sporting technique. From walking and running, to bike fitting services, to cricket bowling and tennis stroke development; we have a range of equipment to assess both in two dimensions (single camera view) or three dimensions (multiple camera views). We will give feedback during the session with follow up reports and diagnosis provided.

Performance and Video Analysis

Using detailed analysis software, we can record and analyse your performance in order to draw out specific elements and provide commentary. This technique is often used for team sports; we can select clips to present alongside relevant data to be used in providing feedback to players pre and post-match.

Equipment Evaluation

Using our high-speed cameras, or muscle and force analysis, we are able to assess the functionality of sports equipment from running shoes and bats, rackets and sticks, to industrial resistance training equipment.

Clinical Assessments

We can perform gait analysis for runners, or for more specialist clinical interventions and orthotic fitting, we can assess you while you walk. Our podiatry services offer either fitting of pre-fabricated orthotics, or the generation of custom made orthotics. Our service also includes follow up assessments to ensure that prescriptions are correct.

OLab Clinic

For the body to function efficiently it needs to be in balance. The slightest imbalance may have a detrimental effect to our health. Aligning the body is key to optimum performance and well-being.  An area that’s often overlooked is alignment of the upper and lower jaw, face and skull. Aligning these correctly is fundamental to performing everyday functions such as respiration, eating and talking.

Many of the Patients at the OLab Clinic have multiple symptoms including; low back pain, knee pain, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, fatigue, migraines, sleep deprivation, bruxism, anxiety, shoulder pain, and much much more.

We conduct Single Subject Design studies at the OLab Clinic exploring the effect of integrating multiple disciplines of Patient Care (Manual Therapy, Biomechanics, Myology, Dentistry, Applied Kinesiology and more) with data capture defining superior rehabilitation processes for each individual.  The aim of the high-standard of research we conduct at OLab Clinic is to provide evidence to the public but also the Healthcare Industry that individuals are just that.. “individual” and without multifaceted professionals working as a Team, valuable ‘drivers’ to a Patients pain may be missed.

Chairperson of the IAHPN

Bringing together multi-disciplinary professionals to create a familial community in which we may cross pollinate with other like minded professionals. Through mutual professional respect we may connect, communicate and learn from each other thus providing us all with opportunity for growth of knowledge, development of skills, access to additional education and to an open, supportive and non-judgmental platform for conversation and debate from which we may all mature, enhance and diversify our personal beliefs in practice. This will in turn result in greater health and wellbeing for all of our clients.

The Group has a Private Facebook page: to join the Group you need to be a paid member of IAHPN.

“When differentiation is blocked, integration cannot occur. Without the movement towards integration, the entire system moves away from complexity – away from harmony – and into rigidity.” (Siegel, 2009).

USANA Silver Director

USANA and science—they were made for each other. That’s why we have a team of in-house experts and scientists dedicated to incorporating knowledge from the latest scientific finding and clinical studies into our products. To stay on the cutting edge, we also partner with renowned research institutions and nutritional experts and consult with our Scientific Advisory Council—a group of independent healthcare professionals dedicated to ensuring we create the best products possible. The importance of nutrition for human health has long been recognized. Prior to 1960, interest in this field focused primarily on the etiology and prevention of acute nutrient deficiency diseases, such as scurvy, rickets, and pellagra. Some 50 essential nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, cofactors, essential amino acids, essential fatty acids) were identified, and recommended daily intakes for those essential nutrients were developed. These recommendations, in turn, proved valuable in eradicating acute nutrient deficiency diseases.

During the past 20 years, attention has shifted to the role of diet and nutrition in the pathogenesis of chronic degenerative diseases. Heart disease, some cancers, osteoporosis, type II diabetes, and macular degeneration are well-known examples of diseases with dietary risk factors, and research is currently underway on many more nutrient-disease interactions. Unfortunately, these associations are difficult to study, in part because of the time frames involved. Chronic degenerative diseases develop over decades (or lifetimes), and it is extremely difficult to conduct research programs spanning more than several years in length. Nevertheless, advances in epidemiological and clinical research have uncovered a great deal of information about the impact of diet and nutrient intakes on long-term health.

USANA’s “Health Benefits of Nutritional Supplements” document is an enumerative bibliography of peer-reviewed research examining possible health benefits of nutritional supplements and functional foods. Papers have been selected on the basis of scientific merit and relevance to the field, regardless of whether positive or negative results were obtained. Our objective in compiling this list is to provide readers with a good cross-section of recent scientific literature, with hopes of contributing to a better understanding of the current state of nutritional research.

World Health Organisation

WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends.

In the 21st century, health is a shared responsibility, involving equitable access to essential care and collective defence against transnational threats.
