Objectives
The Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC) is a research group of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and one of the seven areas of the Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (CREB). The mission of the lab is twofold. First, we develop multibody biomechanical models to analyse and simulate the dynamics of human movement for clinical and sport applications. Second, based on the previous models, we design and build personalized robotic devices that enhance human movement and neurorehabilitation. The group has a state-of-the-art motion analysis laboratory comprising a motion capture system, force plates, electromyography (EMG) and an in-shoe pressure measurement system. Current projects focus on the development of lower limb robotic exoskeletons to assist spinal cord injured subjects, as well as on the analysis of human movement to assess the outcomes of clinical interventions and treatments. The lab also does research on other fundamental topics of mechanical engineering.
