Orthopaedic Biomechanics - Institute Of Biomedical Engineering

Oxford - United Kingdom

The focus of this research group is the biomechanics of the lower limb. For many years, our work centred around the kinematics and mechanics of the knee joint and its replacement. This expanded to include the hip and ankle joints, along with the analysis of human gait and ligament and tendon mechanics. Although our current work still touches on these areas, our main focus is now foot and ankle biomechanics and kinematic and mechanical compensations in the joints of the lower limb. The clinical applications on which we focus are the gait of children with cerebral palsy, running biomechanics, flatfoot, and osteoarthritis treatment.
