AIM

The aim of the Computational Biomechanics Unit is the study of the musculoskeletal biomechanics through the application of numerical modelling methods at different dimensional scales (from the whole organism down to the miscrostructure). We work in close collaboration with clinicians for the development of personalised and predictive models derived from diagnostic data, and in collaboration with the other units of the Lab for the development of specifically designed experiments to validate the numerical models.

We collaborate with numerous Italian and international partners (European, American and Australian), both research and clinical centres. We participated, either as partners or coordinators, to numerous European, national and regional projects.
