RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

An important factor leading to the research  and development of Shapemaster’s unique range of exercise equipment is our ability to work with specialists in the fields of Science and Healthcare. Our equipment is designed and manufactured in our West Yorkshire workshop and can therefore be developed easily from advice and design ideas from professionals outside of Shapemaster. Previously, design work has followed advice from Leeds Beckett University (formerly Leeds Metropolitan) and Oklahoma State University.

CURRENT PROJECTS

Following a pilot study on those living with long term neurological conditions, work will commence early 2016 with the team at Sheffield Hallam University on the development of upper limb mobility for stroke survivors.

Talks continue with Huddersfield University of the ‘falls prediction’ project. This consists of balance tests and predictions of the likelihood of a fall within 3 years, Shapemasters’ exercise circuit improves balance by 30% and therefore will contribute greatly to a falls prevention program.
