‘To Personalize’ or ‘Not to Personalize’: How to Balance the Need for Subject-Specific Anatomical Detail and Clinical Applicability in the Study of Musculoskeletal Loading during Movement
About this webinar
The use of integrated 3D motion capture together with dynamic simulation of motion is currently an established way to study musculoskeletal loading, which today still cannot be measured non-invasively. In particular, in the field of degenerative joint disease, there is the ambition to use these techniques to contribute to patient stratification and consequent prescription of targeted rehabilitation strategies.
Likewise, their potential to define effective treatment approaches to study gait dysfunction in children with cerebral palsy is becoming more and more accepted. In this webinar, Ilse Jonkers aims to present some of her insights and perspectives on the personalization of simulation workflows for the study of musculoskeletal loading.
What you will learn
- How medical imaging techniques help in personalizing musculoskeletal models
- What it will take to make the transfer of musculoskeletal models from the lab to their clinical application
- How to set up efficient musculoskeletal model personalization pathways
Professor at the Human Movement Biomechanics Research Group
From her PhD in 2000 onwards, Ilse Jonkers has successfully bridged a classical human movement science and physical therapy profile towards an integrated biomedical science and biomedical engineering profile. She has maximally exploited the use of 3D motion capture and multi-body simulation techniques to advance the understanding of pathological movement. The two-year postdoctoral stay at the bioengineering department at Stanford University with Professor Delp was a pivotal experience in this process. To date, she is a professor at the Human Movement Biomechanics Research Group and affiliated with the Tissue Homeostasis and Disease Laboratory at KU Leuven.
