Courses

Engineering of musculoskeletal system and rehabilitation

This course presents today research questions and methods associated to the musculoskeletal system, its pathologies, and treatement. In paralell to lectures and hands-on lab, the students will acquire this knowledge by doing a mini-project.

Experimental methods in biomechanics

The aim of this course is to allow the students to become familiar with the basic techniques to measure the mechanical properties of different musculoskeletal tissues or biomaterials used in tissue engineering.

Biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system

The basis for a mechanical description of the musculoskeletal system are presented. This description is based on the concepts of solid mechanics, physiology and anatomy of the musculoskeletal system. Concrete examples of the development of implants are al...
