Welcome to Alex Turner

The Smart Products Beacon is delighted to welcome Assistant Professor Alex Turner to the University of Nottingham.

Alex’s research focusses on the development of new technologies in combination with machine learning to improve the diagnosis and treatments of movement disorders, with a particular attention on gait and ambulation. Movement disorders are typically complex, with significant day-to-day variability in symptoms and limited face-to-face contact with clinical specialists. This leads to treatment plans that can only be adjusted according to patient need on an infrequent basis. Alex’s research is exploring how novel sensors can be combined with machine learning to regularly assess patient movement, develop autonomous physiotherapy updates, and guide changes to treatment.
