Fundamental mechanics of bone relaxation

In this project, the fundamental mechanics of bone relaxation will be established in experiments with human cadaveric bone specimens, to define a material law relating stress relaxation to bone density and stress level. Subsequently, the impact of viscoelasticity on TKA will be investigated in stress-relaxation experiments and computational models of implant placement. Finally, its effect […]

Short Dutch SAQ and perceptions of appearance in scoliosis

Full title: Perceptions of appearance in and of patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis measured with the short Dutch SAQ. Because adolescent patients may have difficulty viewing their own scoliosis, it may also be very challenging for them to determine the severity of their trunk and spinal deformities and to answer the questions in questionnaires designed […]
