DXA "pivotal" at School of Sport

The School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences (SRES) opened in August 2017 and is the seventeenth School to be established within the University of Essex and the first new School for nearly ten years. The School integrates the disciplines of Physiotherapy and Sports Therapy with Sports and Exercise Science and Sports Performance and Coaching.

Pictured following the recent installation of a Hologic W DXA system supplied by Vertec Scientific to the School are (from left): Human Performance Unit (HPU) Sports Scientist Kelly Murray, SRES Technician Jayne Suddaby, HPU Manager Chris McManus, SRES Lecturer (Physiotherapy) Victor Utti, SRES Lecturer (Sports and Exercise Science) Kate Reed, HPU Sports Scientist Joe Barker and SRES Lecturer (Sports and Exercise Science) Matt Taylor.

According to Chris McManus, “The DXA will become a pivotal piece of equipment within the School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Science and HPU. Its use will span across three primary channels, including research (both within an athletic and clinical population), teaching on our undergraduate degrees (Sports and Exercise Science, Sports Performance and Coaching, Sports Therapy and Physiotherapy) and providing a service for athletes to undergo body composition assessments to the highest level of accuracy.

We are delighted to have acquired this equipment and look forward to collaborating with a number of internal and external academics and practitioners.”
