The Innov-age team are looking at arthritis and musculoskeletal conditionsfrom a range of perspectives, including nursing, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and clinical medicine. Professor Jackie Oldham, the Director of the Centre for Rehabilitation Science and Manchester: Integrating Medicine and Innovative Technology (MIMIT) at the University of Manchester and Honorary Director of the Edward Centre for Healthcare Research, discusses the types, symptoms and modifiable risk factors of arthritis.

Dr Anna C. Phillips,Reader in Behavioural Medicine at the School of Sport, Exercise & Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Birmingham, is currently looking at why older people are far more prone to infection after suffering a hip fracture than a young patient with the same injury. She also looks at how depression may affect walking independence and be associated with reduced rehabilitation participation, increasing the risks of repeat falls.
