    Personal profile


    Matt Greig is a Professor of Sport & Exercise Biomechanics and as an Associate Head (Sports Therapy) is a member of the senior management team in the Department of Sport and Physical Activity.  Matt teaches on the Sports Therapy programmes and is actively involved with postgraduate supervision at masters and PhD level.  Matt leads the Sports Injuries research group which includes therapists and biomechanists.

    Matt joined Edge Hill in 2008 from a role as sports scientist with the Football Association, having previously worked at the University of Hull as discipline lead for Biomechanics.

    Research interests

    Matt’s research focuses on biomechanical markers relating to injury risk, most often in the intermittent team sports such as football.  Having migrated into the sports therapy domain, more focus is placed on biomechanical tools that might be used to enhance injury risk identification and optimise rehabilitation.

    Matt has a particular focus in the contemporary development of analysis metrics, and with an ethos of taking biomechanics to the athlete.

    Matt has developed a broad body of work in isokinetic dynamometry, and particularly with an emphasis on the development of screening batteries, and the development of analysis metrics to increase the functional relevance of such testing.

    Contemporary work in GPS technology has been applied to injury risk in football, rugby, netball, cricket, dance, and equestrian disciplines.

    Matt has published articles across a myriad of sports, with a thematic focus on the application of biomechanics research to performance enhancement and injury prevention.
