The origin of CATCH

Brian will explain how the CATCH program has been formed.

In this video, Prof. Brian introduces how the CATCH programme is built and the rationale behind it.

Prof. Brian is Dean of Physiotherapy at UCD, Director of the Insight Centre for Data Analytics and lead Principal Investigator with Ireland’s Connected Health Technology Centre, ARCH. He is the primary coordinator of the CATCH programme and leads two work packages – Technology Interventions and Management. He is the main academic supervisor for three of the ESRs.​

Prof. Brian’s early research career focussed on laboratory-based evaluation of human performance in health and sport, with a particular emphasis on understanding the neurophysiological contributions to repeated musculoskeletal injuries in sport. He has shifted his research focus from laboratory-based analysis towards the field, home and community where contextual relevance is significantly enhanced. This move has been enabled through development of cross cutting collaborations with researchers in Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering across the globe, with a view to explore potential for development and validation of wearable and mobile sensing measurement/intervention applications that open up a new vista for human performance evaluation and enhancement across the spectrum from elite sport to chronic disease and ageing.
