Validation of calcaneus trabecular microstructure measurements by HR-pQCT

In the clinical management of osteoporosis, the most common bone disease that is associated with reduced bone strength and increased risk of broken bones (fractures), it is useful to be able to assess bone strength in individual patients.  Bone strength depends on the amount of bone (bone mass) as well as its structure.  The heel bone is a very accessible site for assessing bon...

Moving from laboratory to real life conditions: influence on the assessment of variability and stability of gait

Researchers from MultiSim have been involved in a collaborative study about measuring gait analysis outside laboratory conditions. This collaboration was a result of the European Society of Biomechanics 2016 mobility award for young researchers awarded to Paola Tamburini. Gait analysis (i.e. measuring how someone walks) can be a handy tool to assess how well someone walks an...

Research on Digital volume correlation (DVC)

Strain uncertainties from two digital volume correlation approaches in prophylactically augmented vertebrae A newly developed technique called digital volume correlation (DVC) can be used to access the internal deformation of heterogeneous materials and structures. DVC has been exploited over the past decade to measure complex deformation fields within biological tissues, suc...
