For Researchers

HULC publishes high-impact clinical research and trains the next generation of clinicians and researchers, to improve management of painful, disabling conditions affecting the arm/hand.  Our research leads to new devices, treatments and processes for managing injuries (like fractures and work injuries) or diseases (like arthritis and osteoporosis) that impair the function of the person, their arm and/or hand See links on this page for outputs and summaries of this work, and work in progress. We conduct:

  • Measurement of patient outcomes and perspectives
  • Clinical trials of new surgery and rehabilitation interventions
  • Studies identifying the predictors of health and work outcomes
