Dr. Meldrum’s research is focused on the area of neurological rehabilitation, in particular measurement systems of physical impairment, technology in rehabilitation (for example strain gauge systems for the measurement of muscle strength), computerised three dimensional movement analysis (for the measurement of human gait) and computerised dynamic posturography (for the measurement of balance).

Dr. Meldrum has researched extensively in Neuromuscular diseases (such as prior polio and Motor Neuron Disease) and in Vestibular rehabilitation (rehabilitation of those with dizziness, vertigo and imbalance). She has recently commercialised a digital health platform with a wearable sensor for the treatment of dizziness, vertigo and imbalance.
