Welcome to the Institute for Biomechanics (IfB)

The Institute’s interests lie in characterizing the material properties of the tissues, the quantification of their adaptation from birth to death, with disease, and due to mechanical demands, as well as comparing the kinetics and kinematics of the functional and dysfunctional system. To be able to monitor risk at an early stage of pathological development, and to quantify the optimal treatment and rehabilitation are crucial for the health and welfare of society.
