Smith & Nephew Lecture - Individualised multiscale modelling to predict risk of bone fracture in osteoporotic patients
28 February 2013
This lecture given by Professor Marco Viceconti from the University of Sheffield will present the main results of a four year research project (VPHOP) devoted to the development and assessment of a new technology that uses computer models of the musculoskeletal biomechanics, individualised over imaging and sensing data, to predict the risk of bone fracture in fragile elders affected by a metabolic disease called osteoporosis.
Refreshments at 18:00 Lecture commences at 18:30
Engineering Strategies to Prevent Soft Tissue Damage
29 February 2012
Soft tissue damage, in the form of pressure ulcers, represents an important indicator of Quality of Care for individuals in both hospital and community settings. Accordingly pressure ulcers, which affect immobile subjects with a wide range of confounding factors, have received increased attention within health services worldwide. Future strategies for prevention of this debilitating condition are encouraging due, in part, to the continued involvement of engineers. This presentation will evaluate what has been learned from these engineering approaches to inform clinical practice
