The Murray Maxwell Biomechanics Laboratory is a biomedical engineering-based research group which studies the links between joint injury and diseases such as osteoarthritis and tendinopathy.
We study how injuries affect the mechanical function of joints, how changes in mechanical function drive disease, and how these injuries can be prevented.
We perform independent research, while also collaborating with orthopaedic surgeons and the biotechnology industry.
Our research focuses on the prevention and repair of ligament and tendon injuries - and improving orthopaedic devices and surgical techniques.
Our projects are aimed at:
Our research involves a wide range of techniques including:
