1st International Workshop 2015

Mechanical loading and deformation in human spine during diurnal activities are recognized to play a major role in the etiology of back disorders and pain. A comprehensive knowledge of these loads/deformations is a basic prerequisite for effective risk prevention and assessment in workplace, sports and rehabilitation, proper management of various disorders, and realistic preclinical testing of spinal implants.

Mechanical loading and deformation in human spine during diurnal activities are recognized to play a major role in the etiology of back disorders and pain. A comprehensive knowledge of these loads/deformations is a basic prerequisite for effective risk prevention and assessment in workplace, sports and rehabilitation, proper management of various disorders, and realistic preclinical testing of spinal implants. However despite considerable advancement and recent investigations, validated knowledge on spine loading remains yet scarce. In vivo, in vitro and computational model studies are all necessary for tangible progress in this field.

This workshop on spinal loading and deformation aims to bring researchers together in order to share and discuss their recent works on related areas and re-examine the potentials of their findings. The research topics cover trunk loads and motions (imaging, sensors and video camera) measurements/ predictions during sports, occupational tasks, seated vibration, etc. with focus on the lumbar and thoracic spines.
