Post-Polio Syndrome (PPS) is a condition that can affect people who have suffered Polio decades after their initial illness. The aim of Alice Bickerstaffe’s research is to gain more insight into the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying loss of muscle strength in PPS and asses the long-term rate of decline in physical mobility in relation to strength decline, investigating potential predictors of the rate of deterioration of physical mobility in PPS. Another aim is to establish the magnitude and severity posed by the problem of falling, the circumstances of falls and associated factors in polio survivors in relation to neuromuscular decline and mobility problems.
