HART member, Geoff Middleton, is currently working alongside a number of colleagues, Garry A Tew (University of York), Jonathan Michaels (University of Sheffield), Helen Crank, Markos Klonizakis and Anil Gumber (Sheffield Hallam University), studying the effects of exercise on the healing process of venous leg ulcers. A new article has been published by the research team, which illustrates the experimental trial and the procedures involved. Details of the publication are available here.
