Brief description This project aims at unravelling the load bearing capacity of human femora microarchitecture. The project will quantify the relationship between geometry, microarchitecture, strain and strength in adult people during normal and accidental motor tasks using micro-computed-tomography images, motion data, supercomputing technology and multivariate statistic. It will benefit the design of novel implantable devices, enhance exercise therapies and diagnostic techniques for promoting hip strength. The project will contribute to the engineering of biological tissue and the development of high-strength and light-weight bio-inspired materials.
