Current PhD Projects ? Biodynamic modelling of the lumbar spine

Biodynamic modelling of spinal forces caused by mechanical shocks on high speed marine craft

This project aims at modelling the lumbar spine of subjects with various postures including seated, leaning, standing, and kneeling. Finite element models will be developed to predict the spinal loads with shock excitation in different postures. Thus, the appropriate posture will be found to bring less health risk to riders on high speed marine craft.
