Our research aims to clarify the role of mechanical factors in disorders of an articular joint, particularly following orthopaedic trauma.
Mechanical factors are involved in many articular joint (hip, knee, ankle, wrist) pathologies, particularly those following orthopaedic trauma. One prime example is the development of arthritis following an articular fracture or ligamentous injury. Our research aims to clarify the role of mechanical factors in these disorders, pairing computational analysis with mechanical testing. The knowledge obtained from this line of research is then used to improve diagnosis of the original injuries, as well as to improve treatment of the articular joint injuries.
