RESEARCH ASSISTANT

PAUL MACKIE

Official role at CRI: SuPeR Knee Research Assistant.

What does that mean you do? The SuPeR Knee research is developing a computer-based tool that will predict how people will recover from a knee replacement. It’s my job to connect with people in the study over videocall (telehealth), while they are in their own home, and to measure their walking speed, mobility and leg strength.

What is your favourite part of your work? As an exercise physiologist, I enjoy trying to find new and innovative ways to get people active, especially in those who have suffered a severe event or injury. Working across different groups has shown me that there are many ways to get the benefits of physical activity and exercise.

How do you look after your own health and wellbeing?   I always look for ways to cycle or walk, whether going to work, to the shops or the beach. When I am not exercising, you will find me in the garden reading a good book.
