Professor Redmond’s research focuses on the interaction between mechanics and biology in a range of musculoskeletal conditions, encompassing interventions studies, disease pathways and related enabling tech. Professor Redmond is a past Arthritis Research UK and NIHR research fellow and clinical academic and now leads a team of 12 researchers ranging from Professor through to research assistant level and from a range of clinical and non-clinical backgrounds. He is well known for his work in biomechanical conditions, particularly in foot and ankle problems associated with the musculoskeletal diseases. One area of particular interest is the use of combinations of internal imaging, together with more traditional biomechanical modelling. Locally he established the FASTER foot and ankle programme and latterly, a Joint Replacement Technologies group within the NIHR Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit, working with surgeons, radiologists, AHPs and engineers to provide better joint replacements.
He has contributed to NICE guidelines, the RCGP training curriculum and a variety of policies, guidelines and standards. He is past chair of ARMA, and of the EULAR health professionals’ standing committee. Professor Redmond has more than 80 peer-reviewed papers and has contributed to more than a dozen of the leading texts in rheumatology and musculoskeletal medicine.

Professor Redmond is head of Clinical Biomechanics and Physical Medicine. He established the renowned Foot and ANKLE Studies group (FASTER) and chairs the LMBRU Joint Replacement Technologies research group. He leads a programme of applied research that encompasses surgical and non-surgical interventions, pathways underpinning disease processes and related enabling technologies, all with a biomechanical focus. He is a leading researcher in the application of combinations of internal imaging, together with more traditional biomechanical modelling. Prof Redmond has more than 80 peer-reviewed papers and has contributed to more than a dozen of the leading texts in rheumatology and musculoskeletal medicine.
