The BIOMEC Lab participates in a pioneering project to introduce exoskeletons to the automotive industry

The use of exoskeletons in automotive industrial production processes can reduce the muscular effort of workers by up to 60%. This figure is derived from a study, driven by the Cluster of the Automotive Industry of Catalonia (CIAC), in a controlled environment with Nissan and Meleghy Automotive workers who have tested exoskeletons in the lower limb area, in maintained positions. In addition to the entities mentioned above, the Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC) of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UPC, the Catalan Institute of Occupational [...]

BIOMEC receives one of the five OpenSim Outstanding Researcher Award 2017

Josep Maria Font received in October 2017 one of the five “Outstanding Researcher Award”, given by the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation (NCSRR), for the project “Personalized robotic exoskeleton controller design for assisted walking”, in collaboration with Dr. B.J. Fregly (RCNL, Rice University). This award has permitted the BIOMEC Lab to participate in the Advanced Users Workshop organized by OpenSim at Stanford (Palo Alto, California), between the 28th and the 30th of March 2018. It has been a great opportunity to interact with OpenSim [...]

The ABLE project has been selected to participate in the CaixaImpulse Programme 2017

A robotic lower limb exoskeleton to promote functional walking recovery of patients with spinal cord injuries, created by the Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), is one of the 23 biomedical research projects selected in the third edition of the CaixaImpulse Programme, organized by "la Caixa" Foundation and Caixa Capital Risc, to promote the transfer of knowledge in biomedicine to market and society, with the creation of biotechnological companies. Project description Every year, around the world, between 250.000 and [...]

New article of the lab on running gait impact dynamics

One of the research lines of the Biomechanical Engineering Lab at CREB is the study of the foot-ground contact dynamics. The impact of the foot with the ground is a critical event when it is running. The high contact forces developed are the main cause of energy loss during the movement and can lead to different musculoskeletal injuries. There are a number of runners that consider whether it is better to run with forefoot or heel impact. Based on the experimental data obtained in [...]

Lagrange Award for the best PhD Thesis on Multibody Dynamics

The Springer outstanding PhD thesis prize, also denominated as Lagrange Award for the best PhD research on Multibody Dynamics has been established in 2017 by Springer and the IFToMM Technical Committee for Multibody Dynamics with the aim of recognizing the outstanding achievements of a young researcher (under 35 years old) at the early stage of their scientific career. The Lagrange award will be given annually to recognize the most successful PhD thesis on Multibody Dynamics over the prior year as judged by the evaluation committee. The winner will receive a 1000 € [...]

Outreach activities of BIOMEC Lab 2016-2017

Now that the academic year 2016-2017 has finished, it’s time to remember and summarize the outreach activities organized by the BIOMEC Lab team during this course. ETSEIB-UPC Open Doors Day On April 1st the Barcelona School of Industrial Engineering (ETSEIB) organized the Open Doors Day, which provided a chance for future students to find out more about the university. The session was divided in two parts: first, a welcome speech presenting the school and its curricula given by Neus Consul, Dean of the university, [...]

CREB’s FabMeetup about Innovative Bio Technologies

The UPC Research Centre for Biomedical Engineering (CREB) presented ten different projects about Innovative Bio Technologies at FabCafe Barcelona (C/ Bailén, 11) during two FabMeetup sessions, held on February 15th and May 25th. FabMeetups are casual events to meet creative and entrepreneur people, and their objective is to encourage innovation from Barcelona and to promote the creation of new start-ups, products or concepts. Each participant had 5 minutes to explain its idea, concept and to eventually present a prototype. The Biomechanical Engineering Lab (BIOMEC) participated with [...]
