Musculoskeletal & Extremity Injury
Extremity injuries account for 34-75% of injuries experienced by civilians in contemporary conflict zones, a third of which are children. In non-conflict zones, 32% of road traffic injuries are extremity injuries. These stark statistics show the need for additional research that can help those injured, both immediately at the point of injury, but also beyond.
Our research into injuries as a result of conflict, sports, road traffic accidents and falls spans a broad remit. You can find out more about some of the research within the Centre in the videos below.
