The interest and importance of biomechanics research has increased greatly in the past few decades. Research in this field plays an important role in societal advancement e.g. in regards to fundamental research of mechanisms and processes, applied research prediction of treatment and injury outcome and consequences, and in innovation and product development
Several different department and divisions perform biomechanics research in KTH, each with using their specific expertise. Despite the different focuses, the common link is using mechanics to solve problems, analyze consequences, explore potential clinical treatments and predict likely outcomes.
The BioMEx center is a central organization and contact point for biomechanics research in KTH.
