New paper from the lab

Tim Weber who is currently on its way towards his Phd in our lab has succeeded in publishing parts of his work in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research. The paper is titeled: “The influence of minimally-invasive total hip replacement on hip reaction forces and their orientations”. Congrats Tim, great job!

Visiting researcher from Ukraine

We had the pleasure to host Dr. Igor Lazarev, Head of the Biomechanics Laboratory of the Research Institute for Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Kiev, Ukraine for one week at our lab. Dr. Lazarev is a very experienced researcher in orthopedic biomechanics who brought a lot of great ideas and impulses. I’m looking forward to a fruitful cooperation on some of the most emerging topics in rehabilitation orthopedics.


Webcast Spine modeling

Musculoskeletal simulations are frequently used to determine the internal loads of the human body. However, the accuracy of the anatomical dataset and actually often the lack of data lead to some uncertainty of the underlying models. In this study we investigated the influence of vertebral geometrical parameter on lumbar spine loads. Therefore, an lumbar spine model has been derived and the effect of altered geometrical parameters has been analyzed.
