  1. "An analysis of the mechanical properties of the Ponseti Method in clubfoot treatment" - This study is a theoretical scientific analysis of the Ponseti Method, namely focussing on its mechanical aspects and with the overall goal to provide recommendations for its future development(see publications below).
  2. "The effect of time-specific mechanical stretching on calf tendons" - This is a lab based project, in conjunction with the Department of Materials focusing on the mechanical integrity of tendons after mechanical stretch. 
  3. "An Accelerated Ponseti protocol to treat clubfoot utilising daily manipulation" - a RCT focussing on providing evidence for an altered treatment regime to improve outcomes in Clubfoot treatment.
