He has consultancy roles with several European, Premiership, WSL, Championship and EFL football clubs and is on the teaching faculty for both the Football Association (FA) and Rugby Football League (RFL).
Dave was Head of Sports Medicine for Blackburn Rovers FC until January 2017, having been in post since July 1999. Prior to this, he was previously Chartered Physiotherapist for Wales (2002-2005), Manchester United FC (1994-1999), Great Britain Rugby League (1990-1994), Wigan RL (1989-1994) and Leigh RL (1984-1989).

IPRS Mediquipe are delighted to have Dave on board with Senior Client Relationship Manager Jude Potter saying, “We are delighted to welcome Dave on board in his new capacity. IPRS Mediquipe have been privileged over the years to be able draw on Dave’s wealth of clinical knowledge in a truly relatable and enthusiastic manner with an aim of challenging and inspiring our customers who have invested in Biodex equipment.”
Dave added, “I have been working in professional sport for over 30 years now and use of the isokinetic dynamometer (IKD) has been an integral part of my screening, testing and rehabilitation processes in the many injured athletes I have been fortunate to work with. Fortunately my role in injury diagnosis and rehabilitation has given me ample opportunity and time to take the use of the isokinetic unit well beyond the text of the accompanying instruction manual, and apply its use in a more functional sports-related way. I have been so fortunate to work with IPRS and Biodex in this time on a clinical basis that this new role just feels like a natural progression. It’s not just about the hardware; the relative staff teams from both companies have always excelled in ensuring that the IKD is available 365 days a year, a key component in rehabilitation within professional sport”.
Dave will be running sessions at IPRS Mediquipe’s Biodex Isokinetic User Day a St. George’s Park on the 2nd November. Click here for tickets.
