The experience of the Machine Mechanics team in the field of dynamic analysis of mechanical systems is deployed to the study of biomechanics too. In fact, the fundamentals of mechanics are applied in various fields of bioengineering, such as the design of endoprosthesis and esoprosthesis, the analysis of movement, the ergonomic study aimed at optimizing human-machine interfaces, the design of rehabilitation machines and advanced sports equipment.
MOVEMENT ANALYSIS AND SIMULATION
The team’s research activity focuses on the dynamic simulation of biomechanical models through the OpenSim multi-body software, which allows to perform kinematic and dynamic analyses starting from experimental data of movement analysis.
BIOMECHANICS OF SPORTS
In the field of sports biomechanics, the Machine Mechanics team deals with the modeling of motion dynamics and the design of test devices for the experimental evaluation of the sporting gesture.
