Our research involves the exploration of biomechanics and neural control of human and animal movements using multidisciplinary approaches involving physical, engineering, biological and physiological methods.
Research in this area also covers detailed finite-element simulations of problems associated with upper limbs, lower limbs and spine.
Work within biomechanics focuses on:
- predictive modelling of human movement.
- in-vivo musculoskeletal diagnostic technique.
- multi-scale musculoskeletal modelling.
- human hand and foot biomechanics.
- functional biomechanics of the spinal column.
- comparative biomechanics.
- biologically-inspired mechanisms.
- finite-element simulation of the effect of surgical procedures, such as revision hip arthroplasty, periacetabular osteotomy.
