Research Challenge 2: Modelling Spinal Biomechanics

Research challenge 2 (RC2) is centred around the need for the development of an advanced spinal rigid-body modelling technique. This is required to determine the expected vertebral loads and motion across a range of daily activities. Additionally, the model should be able to judge the impact of tumour progression and pain on the spinal biomechanics. … Read more
