Abbis Haider Jaffri, PT, MS, PhD

Assistant Professor


 

Research Focus

  • Rehabilitation medicine and in primarily designing and investigating novel diagnostic tools and treatment protocols to optimise patient care and health-related quality of life post-injury. 
  • Understanding neuromuscular adaptations in lower extremity injuries 
  • Long term goal is to improve functional outcomes in patients such as balance or walking gait mechanics, and patient-reported outcomes
