Functional Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Engineering

deals with

  • biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system and effects of pathologies, in particular using computer-aided modeling, simulation and optimization methods
  • development of mechanical / mechatronic systems supporting or restoring musculoskeletal system motion such as orthoses, exoskeletons, functional electrostimulation systems and assistive systems for the cardiovascular system using numerical engineering methods, IT supported engineering and experimental development.
