Organization profile

Introduction / mission

We explore and develop (regenerative) treatment strategies for orthopaedic injuries and disorders based on a thorough understanding of musculoskeletal tissue mechanobiology and biomechanical function.

Highlighted phrase

Novel treatment strategies for an ever-active ageing population

Organisational profile

Human cells produce, maintain and adapt musculoskeletal tissues such as bone and cartilage as a response to their biophysical environment, both in health and disease. In our ever-aging population, orthopaedic injuries and degenerative diseases have become more prevalent, with an increasing socioeconomic impact. Current treatment methods with purely synthetic devices may be limited in view of the increasing longevity and high level of activity of modern day humans. The Orthopaedic Biomechanics research group combines engineering and biology to expand our understanding of musculoskeletal tissues and to develop (regenerative) treatment strategies. These are currently applied to bone, articular cartilage, intervertebral disc and tendons/ligaments.

Fingerprint Dive into the research topics where Orthopaedic Biomechanics is active. These topic labels come from the works of this organisation's members. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
