Biomechanics & Kinematics

The exploratory focus of the Department of Biomechanics and Kinematics are functional testing of orthopedic implants and in the joint kinematics. Engineers and physicians working closely togehther in research on artificial joint replacement with diverse, clinically relevant questions. The department offers different services and procedures and has established a wide range of methods over the years in numerous projects.

Please feel free to contact us with your research question. The department of Biomechanics and Kinematics provides an open portal for scientific cooperation or research contract.
