Computational biomechanics as a tool for personalised medicine Ghent University
Throughout history, medicine has been largely built on statistical grounds, treating individual patients as members of (potentially heterogeneous) groups, which may result in suboptimal treatment outcomes. Ideally, the general focus should be shifted from the general approach towards a more personalised medicine. This research projectU+2019s ambition is to take part in this revolution by using computational biomechanics as a tool for ...
Functional Morphology and Biomechanics of the 'Armature' of Stag Beetles. University of Antwerp
Biomechanics Ghent University
The AOG Biomechanics is doing experimental and computational research on (1) biofluid flows in the cardiovascular system, the pulmonary airways and artificial organs, (2) structural mechanics (musculoskeletal system or stent inflation in an artery) and (3) mechanical interaction between fluids and structures (e.g. heart valve dynamics). The research unit aims to optimize diagnostic methods and therapies, all for the benefit of human health. ...
Soft tissue biomechanics: In vitro, in vivo and silico trials for trauma prevention and repair KU Leuven
The soft tissues in our body are continuously engaged in mechanical interaction, with themselves but also with external devices. These devices may serve to protect (e.g. a helmet), repair (e.g. surgical instruments) or replace (e.g. prostheses) our native tissues. Profound knowledge about the mechanical behavior of these tissues and their interactions is essential to optimize the design of these external devices and treatments, and to ...
