OSTEOARTHRITIS

 

Osteoarthritis (OA) affects 14% of adults and 34% of seniors (65+). OA is a major barrier to  physical activity and quality of life, with symptoms including pain, swelling, and loss of motion  that lead to disability and inactivity. Osteoarthritis is one of the most costly challenges our healthcare system faces.

RESEARCH TEAM

 

The Osteoarthritis Mechanics team is a diverse group of researchers with interests in orthopaedics, biomechanics, and medical imaging.   The team includes engineers, graduate and undergraduate students, surgeons and surgical residents and fellows.  

 

We collaborate actively with radiologists, physical therapists, epidemiologists, rheumatologists and computer scientists.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE
 
  • Osteoarthritis

  • Biomechanics

  •  Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  •  Orthopaedics

  • Biomedical Engineering

CURRENT RESEARCH

 

Our lab develops new methods for measuring joint mechanics and applies these methods to a) identify specific mechanical causes of osteoarthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions and b) quantify the effects of clinical treatments on mechanics.
