Human Body Model

Biomechanics

Sport injuries are common and tremendously costly for society, in addition to being devastating to the athlete. We use our expertise in Human Body Modelling (HBM) and experimental biomechanics to help prevent injuries by means of the development of regulations, test standards and protective gear. Work is based on merging advanced HBM with accident data collection and analysis. Vital in this work is the incorporation of novel materials and new digitalization techniques, facilitated by close collaboration with these other research areas.
