Dr Jonathan Robinson is a Senior Lecturer in Research Methods at Teesside University. He came to work within the HSCI following the completion of a BSc in Sports Therapy, an MSc in Physiotherapy, and a PhD in Rehabilitation. Jonathan was awarded a Doctoral Scholarship within the University in 2009 and his PhD thesis is titled ' The Effects of Exergaming Technology on Postural Sway, User-Acceptance and Flow Experience in People with Multiple Sclerosis '.
During his PhD Jonathan acted as a physiotherapy researcher on a number of research projects, investigating the effects of textured insoles in people with Multiple Sclerosis.
Jonathan teaches research methods and statistical analysis across a range of clinical programmes such as nursing, radiography and physiotherapy, from BSc to Doctoral degrees.
Jonathan's research interests are based around the relatively new concept of exergaming – the use of computer gaming technology as an exercise or rehabilitation tool. Through the completion of his PhD, these interests have extended out to clinical groups; specifically, people with Multiple Sclerosis.
Specifically, these include:
- Virtual rehabilitation
- Exercise in Multiple Sclerosis
- Balance Training
