CADENCE | Clinical Biomechanics & Ergonomics Engineering

This page is under construction, as are our facilities.

The new Clinical Biomechanics and Ergonomics Engineering (CADENCE) laboratory will be located at the new site of the DBE at Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area Main Campus. The one of its kind CADENCE laboratory will facilitate multidisciplinary translational research in one comprehensive setting and house four research groups:

  • Theragnostics through interactive robotics (Prof. Rauter)
  • Functional biomechanics in adult orthopaedics (Prof. Mündermann)
  • Clinical biomechanics in paediatric orthopaedics and musculoskeletal modeling (Prof. Viehweger, PD Dr. Sangeux)
  • Spine Biomechanics (PD Dr. Netzer)

The 190 sqm CADENCE laboratory will be equipped with the rehabilitation robot The FLOAT and various sensor technologies. The new CADENCE laboratory will foster innovative and groundbreaking interdisciplinary biomedical research and serve as teaching laboratory for the courses on Clinical Biomechanics and Ergonomics Engineering within the new Master of Science program and the PhD program at the DBE.
