  • Free AnyBody webcast: Musculoskeletal Loads within the Rats HindLimb

    Dear Subscribers,

    Dr. Tim Wehner, Inst. of Orthopaedic Research and Biomechanics, University of Ulm, Germany, will be giving a free webcast presentation on Tuesday September 21st on:

    "Musculoskeletal Loads within the Rats Hind Limb"

    The rat is of increasing importance for experimental studies on fracture healing. The healing outcome of long bone fractures is strongly influenced by mechanical factors, such as the interfragmentary movement. This movement depends on the stability of the fracture fixation and the musculoskeletal loads. The fixation stability can be easily determined through in vitro tests, however little is known about the loads in rats. This webcast will present the development of an inverse-dynamic model of the rats hindlimb using AnyBody to be able to estimate the internal loads inside the rats femur during gait.

    Notice that to accommodate viewers from different sides of the planet we are running the presentation twice:

    1st show: Berlin 9:00/9AM = Beijing 15:00/3PM = Tokyo 16:00/4PM = Sydney 17:00/5PM.

    2nd show: Berlin 21:00/9PM = New York 15:00/3PM = San Francisco 12:00/12PM = Auckland 7:00/7AM Wednesday.

    The duration of the webcast is one hour including Q&A. The event is free but it is necessary to register to participate.
