"Movement Health: choice in both the ‘how’ and the ‘what’ of movement"


Working closely with Mark Comerford and Sarah Mottram over the past decade, Lincoln has not only helped design, develop, and deliver the education but also the fundamental concepts that support Kinetic Control, The Performance Matrix (TPM) and Movement Science Practitioner Series.


His role as Head of Research, Education, and Development has allowed Lincoln to work closely with the Comera Movement Science team in expanding the offering of Movement Health inspired educational content. This role has seen him assist his colleagues’ understanding and application of the Movement Health concept and supported their ability to transmit this message to clinicians and coaches within elite sport and private practice around the world. Lincoln has also focused on developing his own ability to capture his course attendees' attention through an engaging teaching style, the use of schematics, and a keen sense of humour.

Originally educated within strength and conditioning science, he has sought to blend the structure of performance focused professions with the clinical expertise of CMS and share this insight across a range of disciplines. He has a particular interest in exercise design and the integration of movement assessment into long-term programming for performance. His MRes focussed on quantifying execution of cognitive movement control tests and exploring the proposed relationship between loss of movement choice and clinically relevant features of movement variability. Considered an accomplished writer, he has published multiple times in peer-reviewed journals to include Biomechanics MDPI, Clinical Biomechanics, Gait and Posture, Physical Therapy in Sport, Musculoskeletal Science and Practice. Focussing on a diverse range of topics from Movement Health to hamstring strain injury from both a theoretical and applied perspective, these publications have led to conference presentations including appearances at the Football Medicine Strategies events in both 2016 and 2019.

He maintains strong connections with St Mary’s University where he is currently engaged in a PhD Studentship, delivering on both undergraduate and post graduate programmes including the Applied Sports Biomechanics MSc.
