More Than Feet – The University of Brighton develops Podiatry resource
8th June 2020
Richard Keating, an MSK specialist podiatrist, graduated from the University of Brighton in 2014. While at university his research assignment formed his final year project, which his group work was published in the Journal and Ankle Research.
After leaving university Richard developed a keen interest in biomechanics, particularly the complications the foot can experience in abnormal loading. This interest led Richard to take a position working in a multi-disciplinary team with physiotherapy and orthopaedics in central London.
Richard is currently studying for his MSc in podiatry with clinical biomechanics and using these skills to enable more effective patient treatment. Recently Richard has undertaken a lecturing position with New College Durham, focusing his efforts into teaching the next generation of Podiatrists.
