Dr James Shippen is a Principal Lecturer in the Centre for Mobility and Transport Research at Coventry University UK. His first degree is in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Leeds, UK and his PhD is from the University of Birmingham, UK in Mechanical Engineering on the subject of coupled acoustic-structural finite element analysis.  At the University of Birmingham he was the Director of Biomedical Engineering, followed by a period as the technical director of a biomechanical analysis commercial organisation. At Coventry University he has initiated three Masters Courses and written the BoB musculoskeletal package.
Computational biomechanics
Mechanical engineering students will be familiar with using the theories of Newton, Lagrange and Laplace to calculate the motion of engineering components and systems however, these techniques are equally applicable to the mechanism of the human body. This course will apply conventional engineering analysis to a complex mechanical linkage, which happens to be a person. This approach will enable the student to look inside the body to establish the load in the skeleton, joints and muscles generated during a range of everyday tasks from standing still through gait to sporting activities and beyond.

The course will be a combination of theoretical information conveyed in a series of lectures, practical experiments performed by the students under the supervision of the lecturer and presentations by the students to the lecturers from which the student will receive feedback.

Throughout the course, the students will use the Biomechanics of Bodies (BoB) software, which can undertake kinematic, kinetic inverse dynamic analysis of human motion.  They will also capture their own motion using a magneto-inertial system and analyse the movement in BoB to calculate biomechanical variables associated with their motion, for example, joint contact forces, joint torque, muscle lengths, ground reaction forces.

The learning outcomes of the course will be for the students to appreciate and be able to apply the capabilities of computational biomechanics to calculate biomechanical characteristics of human motion.  They will also be able to measure human motion and use this data as an input for a biomechanical analysis.


ESEM WebCon (Webconference) 2017

ESEM WebCon (Webconference) 2017
First call for paper
ESEM mission statement: Our aim is to improve education in Biomedical Engineering and related topics in Europe. Furthermore, we want to build bridges between countries and show students a European perspective.
ESEM WebCon is the place to present your current research (Masters and PhD projects) to an international community, get feedback, establish new contact and put yourself in the spotlight without the need for travel budgets.
ESEM WebCon 2017 will cover all topics related to Biomedical Engineering like Biosensors, Biomechanics, Implants, Medical Devices, Biomedical Materials.
The conference is open to all interested participants and free of charge. The conference will be live-streamed online. Discussions are possible. All you need for presenting or listening is a device with web connection.
Presenters are asked for submission of a research paper. All papers will be reviewed and, if accepted and presented, published in conference proceedings.
Important Dates:
Delivery of full paper (<2000 words): September 1st 2017 (Detailed instructions for submission will be given later.)
Acceptance and reviews: October 1st 2017
Corrections: November 1st 2017
WebCon: December 15th 2017

Visited Ortho Baltic and KTU Laboratory of Biomechatronics in Kaunas

Today we visited Ortho Baltic (Baltic Orthoservice) in Kaunas - one of the largest orthopedic companies in Europe.
Ortho Baltic is one of the few Lithuanian companies engaged in researching and creating new products and technologies. Companies Technology and Innovation Center designed not only to support new orthopedic technical products, but also personalize the joints, head, spine and dental implants. Ortho Baltic is a place where is smart use of modern technologies.
The second object - KTU Laboratories of Biomechatronics. Dr. Aurelijus Domeika acquainted with the available technology, which is very skillfully complete and currently in the laboratory is the main software and hardware for human motion (MoCap) tracking with force platforms, inertia (IMU) systems, simulators, running tracks with touch coating, etc.

Trips of practical biomechanics started today

On this Monday, our future biomechanics began a study tour through the practice of Lithuanian companies related to medical equipment, biomechanics, providing rehabilitation services, etc.

Today we visited Technical Assistance Center for the disabled - Thank them!

If what you want shared biases of their production, activities - we are open to your suggestions.
