Biomechanics Laboratory

Understanding the functions and properties of organisms to develop technologies that are useful to people

 
The human body exerts force to move and maintain its structure and internal circulatory mechanisms. An injury, therefore, is a state in which a body part is damaged by external or internal force, rendering it unable to function. Tissue damage, on the other hand, can cause cardiovascular disease. Our laboratory is researching the mechanisms of injuries and diseases through mechanical studies of the physical strengths and limitations of human bodily functions. We are also developing new technologies to prevent injury and disease.

For Society

To ensure people can live out their natural lifespans in good health, we are working to develop protectors and safety devices that prevent injury and facilitate exercise, in addition to simulation technologies to predict whether a person is likely to develop a disease.
