Research Biography

Claire is 'helping the most at-risk people in hospital get moving.' She is a registered physiotherapist (with AHPRA) who obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of South Australia, and PhD from Flinders University. Claire is a researcher-teacher-clinician, with expertise in physiotherapy and the physical recovery of people with acute medical or surgical conditions. Her clinical and research work has specifically focused on those recovering from a critical illness that required mechanical ventilation, other cardiorespiratory conditions and older medical patients. She has experience in range of methods to measure respiratory and peripheral muscle performance, body composition, exercise capacity, mobility and physical activity.

Research Interests

- Respiratory and peripheral skeletal muscle dysfunction in acute (critical) illness

- Mechanical ventilation, respiratory muscles and critical care

- Outcome measurement (skeletal muscle, physical function, respiratory, physical activity and sedentary behaviours, long term)

- Body composition analysis (ultrasound, bioimpedance)

- Physiotherapy management of acute medical and surgical conditions

- Care of the older and frail patient
