  • Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratories

    Location:

    A-407 East Fee Hall , 965 Fee Road, East Lansing, MI 48824

    Description:

    The primary focus of our research laboratories is to understand mechanisms of osteoarthrosis and investigate methods of diagnosis, intervention, and prevention of this disease. In these investigations, the OBL utilizes in vivo animal models, human cadavers, and mathematical models to study blunt joint trauma. The OBL also conducts experiments on athletic and workplace footwear in cooperation with various manufacturers. These studies specifically examine the durability, comfortability, and the ability of footwear to help protect the body from injury.

    The OBL regularly performs co-operative studies with orthopaedic manufacturers to assist in the evaluation and development of new products and devices. Through experimentation involving biomechanical tests, histological analyses, biochemical assays, and mathematical model analyses, we seek to answer the many questions that evolve when studying various musculoskeletal diseases and related problems.
