Trainee Talk:

Femoral Augmentation to Prevent Hip Fracture in a Sideways Fall

When:  Thursday January 14 @ 11:00am

Overview:

This talk presents our lab’s journey towards designing a hip fracture prophylactic and improving experiments modelling this injury. Previous work developed a robust computational-experimental model simulating hip fracture in a sideways fall, which we will use to analyze the efficacy of a prophylactic. Current work proposes incorporating high speed x-ray as an additional analysis method.
