Dr Arnold has over 35 years’ experience as a professional electronic design engineer developing equipment and instrumentation for a variety of industries including Naval, Automotive, Meteorological, Military, Oil and Medical. Graham has recently completed a PhD, designing a novel foot platform to record three-dimensional forces acting on the foot to ultimately provide a better understanding of diabetic foot ulcer development.  He has been employed by the University for the last 12 years, supervising and supporting students and staff in conducting research projects using the extensive range of instrumentation within the Institute of Motion Analysis and Research.
