Using biomechanical modeling and testing to find optimal solutions to clinical questions


Dieter Wahl

Focus Area Leader: Biomechanical R&D

The process of finding optimal solutions to clinical questions is enhanced by biomechanical modeling and testing, aiming to establish integrated experimental and computational investigation methods for research in fracture fixation and joint reconstruction.

Our capabilities range from in silico methods to more classical anatomy in state-of-the-art anatomical labs, where two workplaces are equipped with radiolucent operating tables, C-arms, and balanced LED operation room lights to mimic surgical conditions. A high-resolution camera system, integrated into operating room lights, is available for documentation and educational purposes. Advanced biomechanical studies are performed with tailored test setups and loading protocols with physiological patterns, supplemented with X-rays, video, and motion tracking systems. Computational analyses assist the designing, optimization, and testing of existing and newly developed implants and endoprostheses on bone models.


Our expertise includes:

  • Basic and advanced biomechanical testing
  • Motion tracking investigations
  • Finite elements modeling and computer simulations
  • Data acquisition and processing
  • Statistics
