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.
We got some medial attention. Last week Prof. Dendorfer was featured in Healthcare 4.0, Wirtschaftzeitung with an interview on virtual medicine.
Also the laboratories work on virtual human body modeling and stress has been mentioned in an special supplement on Research in Bavaria in the German newspaper Die Zeit.
Our team will contribute to the World Congress of Biomechanics in Dublin this year.
Franz Suess will present his study on the influence of stress on spinal loading.
Max Aurbach will talk on cross talk of muscle activation and shoulder modeling.
Simone Kubowitsch will present her work an muscle inbalances due to cognitive and emotional stress.
Together with our clinical partners from Asklepios Clinics Bad Abbach we got another article published in the European Spine Journal. The work shows the influence of sagittal balance on spinal loading and gives implications for clinical restoration of spinal balance. Thanks to all Co-workers for the good job.
