Musculoskeletal Simulation for Orthopedic Applications

Objective:

Bone and joint disorders are a leading cause of physical disability worldwide and account for 50 % of all chronical diseases in people over 50 years of age. The goal of this project is to devise computerized simulation techniques that will assist in the preoperative planning of othopaedic surgeries. 

The shoulder and the forearm are our current research focus.
