Biography

Louise is a Researcher in Orthopaedics at the Orthopaedic Research Institute (ORI), at Bournemouth University. Louise joined ORI in April 2017 after completing a research placement whilst studying her undergraduate degree at Bournemouth.

Whilst at University, Louise specialised in sports psychology, exercise physiology and injury rehabilitation and now focuses her research on rehabilitation before, and after, major elective orthopaedic surgery. Other research interests include the conservative management of osteoarthritis and Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS). In addition, Louise is currently completing a PhD with an aim to investigate the role of neuromuscular electrical stimulation for improving recovery following hip replacement surgery.
