Jay-Shian Tan

MPhty, BSc (Phys), PhD (enrolled)

Jay is a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist currently undertaking a PhD in Physiotherapy at Curtin University and the OPUS Centre for Research Excellence. He currently consults on a part time basis, working with people with complex and chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions.

Jay’s studies will explore the use of wireless movement sensors that provide joint angle and muscle activity data for people with knee osteoarthritis. If these sensors are successful in detecting movement, clinicians may be able to use them to assess the movement of their patients outside the clinical environment. He also plans to investigate the role of these sensors in detecting changes in movement after Cognitive Functional Therapy to determine if a change in movement is associated with a change in disability and pain.
