Bioengineering Laboratory:

Bioengineering Laboratory: includes a purpose built MTS 858 Bionix® test system with supporting biomechanical subsystems including a hip wear simulator and spinal kinematics system. This servohydraulic system can precisely simulate a full range of joint motions including flexion/extension, lateral bending, axial tension/compression, torsion, X-axis shear and Z-axis shear. Load data from a six-degree-of-freedom load cell and displacement data from a range of transducers throughout the test system are used to evaluate the performance of various orthopaedic treatments such as balloon kyphoplasty and scoliosis correction surgery.
