Capturing patient- or condition-specific intervertebral disk (IVD) properties in finite element models is outmost important in order to explore how biomechanical and biophysical processes may interact in spine diseases. However, disk degenerative changes are often modeled through equations similar to those employed for healthy organs, which might not be(More)
Human musculoskeletal system resources of the human body are valuable for the learning and medical purposes. Internet-based information from conventional search engines such as Google or Yahoo cannot response to the need of useful, accurate, reliable and good-quality human musculoskeletal resources related to medical processes, pathological knowledge and(More)
R heology is defined as the study of the flow and deformation of fluids. Based on the need to quickly and accurately set and control processing conditions, optimize product performance, and/or ensure product acceptance, accurate rheological measurements have become essential in the characterization of any flowable materials. By utilizing rheological(More)
Multi-scale modeling of the musculoskeletal system plays an essential role in the deep understanding of complex mechanisms underlying the biological phenomena and processes such as bone metabolic processes. Current multi-scale models suffer from the isolation of sub-models at each anatomical scale. The objective of this present work was to develop a new(More)
Exergames have been proposed as a potential tool to improve the current practice of musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Inertial or optical motion capture sensors are commonly used to track the subject's movements. However, the use of these motion capture tools suffers from the lack of accuracy in estimating joint angles, which could lead to wrong data(More)
Modelling is necessary to understand and evaluate the musculoskeletal system of the human body. Most of the developed models used anthropometrical and geometrical parameters of the bones and muscles from the literature. The aim of the present work was to study the sensitivity of anthropometrical (segment mass) and geometrical (physiologic cross-sectional(More)
