Paul Gittings was awarded the Andre Zagame Rehabilitation Specialist Prize for his presentation at the International Society of Burn Injuries Congress in Miami.
Paul presented the first data analyses from the RCT involving strength training in acute burn patients. Paul has been completing with the help of other FWF supported researchers.
A huge congratulations Paul - your efforts have been rewarded!
Paul's research has confirmed for the first time that 4 weeks of resistance (strength) training in minor-moderate sized burns is beneficial in the first 6 weeks post-burn with an effect size (benefit) of 31%. Music to our ears!!
Great work Paul.
