Biomechanics Vrije Universiteit Brussel

1. Podiatric biomechanics: The biomechanical analysis of the lower extremities during locomotion, the foot in particular, is essential for the scientific understanding of the biomechanical function of the lower body. This is very important for medical disciplines as orthopaedics and podiatry because a correct diagnosis and treatment of biomechanical disfunctions of the lower extremities rely heavily on a good understanding of the different ...

Human Movement Biomechanics Research Group KU Leuven

The central research area of the research group ‘human movement biomechanics’ is to investigate the mechanics of musculoskeletal function during gross motor functions (varying from activities of daily living, vocational activities to sports activities) and how the musculoskeletal function is reorganized and adapts to cope with these functions.

Biomechanics and Human Biometry Vrije Universiteit Brussel

The main research topics of the department BIOM are: 1. Three-dimensional kinematics of human movements; 2. Biomechanical simulation modelling and optimisation of sports movements; 3.

Biomechanics Section KU Leuven

The research activities of the division are concentrated in three areas of biomechanics: 1. FUNDAMENTAL BONE RESEARCH: Both the relation between bone structure and its mechanical properties and the influence of mechanical sollicitation on bone remodelling are investigated. These relations are particularly relevant for the study and comprehension of fracture healing mechanisms and of osteoporosis. The division uses state of the art engineering ...
