We will present parts of our work this summer at the European Society of Biomechanics Congress in Vienna, where we will have 5 podium presentations from our lab and at CMBBE in New York with presentation and poster. More details will follow.
Thanks to all participants in the 2019 musculoskeletal modeling workshop. It was a pleasure having you in our university. With participants from 8 countries it was once again a great opportunity to see old and make new friends.
The workshop covered basic intro to modeling, hand-on and details on recent shoulder modeling activities.
Am 12.04. findet wieder Nacht Schafft Wissen statt. Das Labor für Biomechanik ist von 18:00-23:00 für Besucher offen. Wir freuen uns auf tolle Diskussionen. Der Vortrag “Es muss auch mal wehtun – die Biomechanik des Älterwerdens” findet um 21:00 im Raum D002 statt. Für die Kinder haben wir wieder Roboter vorbereitet, die durch Muskelkraft gesteuert werden können (18:00 – 20:00, Dauer etwa 10-20 Minuten). Unser Labor ist umgezogen: Der neue Raum ist C101!
Das vollständige Programm ist hier zu finden:
Congratulations to our long time team member Michael Putzer who had his successful doctoral examination last Thursday. The titel of his thesis: Development of subject-specific musculoskeletal models for studies of lumbar loading.
In his work he developed models in the AnyBody Modeling System and could show how anatomical and mechanical parameters influence biomechanical results. Furthermore, he studied the influence of intervertebral disc herniation on lumbar loading.
The thesis was handed in to the Universität der Bundeswehr München. His examers where Prof. Ingo Ehrlich and Prof. Norbert Gebbeken.
We will once again organize a Musculoskeletal Modeling Workshop using the AnyBody Modeling System.
The course will include a review and discussion of important theoretic background, but emphasis will be on practical skills to perform musculoskeletal simulations with the AnyBody Modeling System. The course will span several areas of musculoskeletal simulation from medical device development to ergonomics, sport performance, general biomechanics and academic/clinical research.
Details can be found on the laboratory webpage.
Our team has been part of the WCB in Dublin this summer. We presented various pieces of our work like how fatigue is influencing muscle recruitement, how mental stress is increasing muscle and spinal disc forces and some new data on muscle crosstalk.
Thanks to the organizers. It has been great fun.
One position is open for a new project within the Regensburg Center of Health Science and Technology.
Project: Blended Physiotherapie
Novel treatment options for musculoskeletal disorders should be developed together with a physical therapist. From this, applications should be developed to support physical therapy.
The position focuses on musculoskeletal modeling and app development.
Duration: 2 years
Salary: 75% E13 TVL
Please contact Prof. Dendorfer for further info.
We just got a paper accepted in the Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research .
The work is a collaboration with our partners at University Clinics Regensburg. The authors are Paul Schmitz, Christoph Neumann, Carsten Neumann, Michael Nerlich and Sebastian Dendorfer. The titel: Biomechanical Analysis Of Iliac Crest Loading Following Cortico-Cancellous Bone Harvesting.
Thanks to all for the good work.
