Seminar: Understanding upper limb injury and function through integrated musculoskeletal modeling
October 23, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Abstract: Understanding clinical movement dysfunction and designing effective rehabilitation is challenging due to multiple concurrent structural tissue changes, injuries, or treatments, which obscure the effects of isolated changes on outcomes. Further, identifying individuals most at risk for poor outcome or reinjury may be challenging due to variability within the population. Because the primary drivers of poor outcomes are unclear, there is a lack of consistent guidelines for clinicians regarding treatment timing and highly variable functional outcomes following treatment. This presentation will describe how we use computational musculoskeletal modeling to identify the mechanical impacts of neuromusculoskeletal injury on tissue growth and limb function, use case studies to illustrate these concepts. I will also describe our novel integrated computational framework linking musculoskeletal modeling to represent muscle changes over time and finite element modeling to simulate bone growth in response to mechanical and biological stimuli.
