Hello Andre,

As far as I know as an ex-postgraduate in MMU, the best persons to ask
probably are Dr. Serdar Aritan and Dr. Peter Dabnichki. I remember that they
have done some work on such projects and that they have publiched one or two
papers. I am sorry but I do not have their e-mails. Ypu might find them from
the BIOMECH index.

Good luck.
