He is affiliated with the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine â€“ East Midlands, an IOC Research Centre for Prevention of Injury and Protection of Athlete Health. He is well known for his series of publications on the mechanism of sport-related ankle sprain injury, which included an IOC-supported study on two ankle sprain cases from 2008 Beijing Olympics. He utilised the findings from the mechanism study to drive his another series of research on the prevention of ankle sprain injury, by a pair of sport leggings with all the electronics printed on, a motion sensor to detect injurious foot and ankle motion, and a pair of electrodes to stimulate the leg muscles in order to catch up and stop the injury in time [more details at http://danielfong.org]. Since 2006, he has gained Â£1.5M research grant from 32 projects, and have published about 60 peer-reviewed journal articles.
