Our main research focus is the investigation of musculoskeletal loading.

We develop novel models, especially in the spine and new algorithms and methods for experiments and numerics. Especially, we are interested in fatigue and the influence of mental stress on musculoskeletal loading. Furthermore, we analyse ergonomic related topics, injury risk analyses for athletes and orthopedic biomechanic.

EFRE Project: Virtual human body models for prevention, therapie and rehabilitation of shoulder injuries. Together with partners from the University of Plzen, CZ and clinical partners Carsten Englert, Artos Regensburg, University Regensburg and Krankenhaus Cham we are working on a new generation of shoulder models and novel techniques for the treatment of shoulder injuries and degeneration.
