Cervus partner with University of Chichester to help reduce musculoskeletal injury in the British Army

The University of Chichester’s Occupational Performance Research Group in partnership with Cervus was recently awarded DASA funding to develop a Physical Activity Capture & Evaluation System (PACES) for the British Army.

The University’s Occupational Performance Research Group (OPRG) has teamed with Cervus  to develop a Physical Activity Capture & Evaluation System (PACES) to inform musculoskeletal injury prevention strategies in service personnel. The OPRG and Cervus team secured £100k of funding to develop PACES from the Government’s Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA).

The project will draw on the teams expertise in field data collection and its ability to analyse, synthesise and present data in a manner tailored to the user’s requirements. The researchers will work with the University’s local military unit 16 Regiment Royal Artillery located at Thorney Island, where they will collect data in personnel carrying out a range of daily activities over an extended period.

We are extremely proud to be working with UoC again as we work together to improve the quality of life for our soldiers
