Dr John Vaughan

Dr John Vaughan is employed as a Knowledge Transfer Fellow in Photonic Sensors and Devices.

John is curently working on Development of a remote electronic rehabilitation service to enable safe delivery and remote monitoring of lower limb rehabilitation in the community. This project is funded by a grant awarded by Arthritis Research UK (ARUK) and Manchester AHSC Healthcare Challenge in December 2013.  It is a project joint with with colleagues in Nursing (Drs Emma Stanmore (PI) and Christine Brown Wilson) and colleagues in EEE (Prof Krikor Ozanyan and Dr Paul Wright) together with NHS podiatrist Neil Frame and SME MDTi (Medical Device Technology International). It uses the optical fibre imagimat (magic carpet) technology to remotely log and analyse exercising on a tilted platform to improve limb function and mobility.

It  employs PDRAs Dr John Vaughan in the PSI and Dr Jose Cantoral Ceballos in EEE.

Dr Vaughan previously worked on our EPSRC project to develop an optical fibre sensormat or iMagiMat to define patient mobility patterns that precede a fall. The sensormat will be used as a clinical tool to monitor gait and movement, enabling identification of deterioration with timely implementation of strategies to prevent falls. The technology will be subjected to clinical tests and evaluations in order to define the market and major cost savings achievable in reduced care costs for elderly people, whose independence would be maintained by appropriate intervention.

Dr John Vaughan completed his PhD from 2001 to 2004 on “Optoelectronic Devices for Spectrochemical Sensing”, in the Department of Instrumentation and Analytical Science (DIAS) at UMIST, specialising in coatings for surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy.

He worked from 2004-2009 as a Research Associate on Unilever-Manchester Advanced Research Partnership grant, then as a Knowledge Transfer Associate on a KTP Unilever-Manchester project, and then on technical research and project management for the EU HYPER project.
