Brendan is a Sports Biomechanist with a PhD in Sports Biomechanics from Dublin City University as well as a first class honours degree in Sports Science and Health. He is a widely published author with research work published in several leading scientific journals including Sports Biomechanics and Medicine and Science in Sport and Exercise.
Brendan was instrumental in commissioning the Sports Surgery Clinic’s state of the art 3D Biomechanics Lab. In the lab he works with motion capture technologies to provide individuals with detailed feedback on their movement patterns in order to inform individualised rehabilitation or to reduce their risk of future injury.
His current research interests include the biomechanics of athletic groin pain, the expedited return to sport following groin injury and return to play criteria following ACL reconstruction.
Brendan is a keen sportsman and has previously represented Ireland in the long jump at both a junior and senior level. He is a former national senior long jump champion and still competes competitively for his club Mullingar Harriers.
