MultiSim’s participation at the International & European Society of Biomechanics

We are pleased to announce our participation at the prestigious Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) and Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB). These two conferences are the largest gathering of experts in the field of biomechanics. They present a wonderful opportunity for our researchers to receive feedback and have engaging discussi...

Multiscale modelling methods in biomechanics

Multisim Again
  Dr Pinaki Bhattacharya talks about his research on the catergorisation for multiscale modelling in biomechanics. Multiscale modelling in biomechanics is a relatively new research domain. It has potential applications in preventing and developing treatments for a wide variety of diseases, however, because of this wide-ranging applicability, multiscale models that ...

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...

A new approach to measuring strain in bones

Evaluating the deformation field in bones under loading is very important to better understand the effect of pathologies or treatments with biomaterials. Unfortunately due to a bone heterogeneous and complex structure, the experimental measurement of bone specimens in the laboratory is not trivial, and current methods are limited to analyses on the surface of the bone. The Di...

Modelathon 2016: Participants share their experiences

Registrations for Modelathon 2017 are now open!   The challenge explained At the 2016 Modelathon, participants were asked to design adequate footwear to prevent ulcers in the foot of a diabetic patient. The topic was inspired by a real life problem faced by people affected by diabetes type 2, who often suffer from these injuries and benefit from special footw...

Experimental validation of DXA-based finite element models for prediction of femoral strength

Osteoporotic fractures are a major clinical problem and current diagnostic tools have an accuracy of only 50%. The standard clinical assessment of Osteoporosis is based on an exam called dual energy X-rays absorptiometry (DXA) with which the local areal bone mineral density is measured at the hip. However, this investigation has been found to be, in some cases, a poor predictor...
