Seminar announcement flyer

This week’s "Open Your Mind" seminar will be given by Wafa Skalli, Arts et Metiers Engineer, Founder and scientific director of the Institut de Biomécanique Humaine Georges Charpak, Arts et Métiers ParisTech, coinventor of the EOS low dose biplanar X-Rays system and member of the National Academy of Surgery. The seminar is scheduled on Friday, October 6 2017 and will take place will take place at Arts et Métiers ParisTech (151 boulevard de l’Hôpital, 75013 Paris) in lecture theatre Bezier between 1:30 pm and 3 pm. The seminar topic will be " Translational research in Musculoskeletal Subject specific modeling: from basic research to clinical routine".

Abstract :
Musculoskeletal disorders represent the second cause of disability, and a huge human and socio-economic burden. While mechanical modeling is daily used in a wide range of field, biomechanical models for implant design and for clinical routine still raise various challenges: How to get subject specific geometry, material properties and loads, from cost efficient clinically available data? How to deal with complexity and develop reasonably simplified models with a compromise between numerical cost and clinical relevance?  How to validate the models? Recent advances allow drastic progress to face such issues, and approaches will be presented, together with examples, particularly regarding spine biomechanics and bone fragility.
