Dr Mohammad Al-Amri 

I obtained my PhD in Rehabilitation Engineering from the Centre for Biomedical Engineering at University of Surrey. During my PhD studies, I have had considerable research experience in several biomedical engineering fields including Virtual Rehabilitation and Clinical Movement Analysis. This allowed the development of the Surrey Virtual Rehabilitation System (SVRS) that is considered appropriate for gait rehabilitation protocols. As part of the SVRS I developed the Real-time Treadmill Speed Control Algorithm that makes augmented treadmill training feasible.
