Dr. Lynsey Duffell
Dr. Lynsey Duffell is a Clinical Scientist and an Associate Professor within the Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering at University College London. Her research aims to improve health and quality of life for people with long standing health conditions, with a particular focus on neuromodulation combined with activity-based therapy for neuroplastic recovery after Spinal Cord
Injury (SCI). Dr Duffell has a long-standing interest in Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) cycling, which was the focus of her PhD and early post-doctoral work, and she is now co-PI on a study
investigating a novel form of FES cycling, which provides biofeedback of motor function using virtual reality. She has also been PI and Co-I on clinical trials investigating the potential benefits of transcutaneous Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) and Dorsal Genital Nerve Stimulation (DGNS) in people with chronic SCI. Dr Duffell’s research lab forms part of the Aspire Centre for Rehabilitation
Engineering and Assistive Technology (CREATe) and the London Spinal Cord Injury Research Centre,
based at the RNOH in Stanmore.
Dr. Sean Doherty
Dr. Sean Doherty's research interests are in the restoration of function, or alleviation of symptoms, following Spinal Cord Injury. He particularly focuses on bladder and bowel dysfunction and the use of non-invasive electrical stimulation systems. Further to this he is interested in the development of devices for the measurement of bladder activity and in the translation of our work into available medical devices.
His current research aim is to develop a method of restoring control over urinary and faecal continence following Spinal Cord Injury.
Dr. Doherty has an academic background as Doctor of Philosophy (2019, University College London) and Master of Engineering (Honours) from Cardiff University (2015)..
