Intro into the Mayo Clinic’s Biomechanics Core Research Support Services
The Biomechanics Core team provides a full range of testing services for research, development and clinical applications. The session will give an overview of the following capabilities:

• Mechanical testing. Mechanical behavior testing of biological and nonbiological test articles is conducted by staff engineers using commercially available and custom-made systems at scales ranging from the nanometer level to whole-body cadaver tests.
• Kinematic and kinetic data collection and analysis. Kinematic and kinetic data can be collected and analyzed to evaluate systemic biomechanical function augmented by medical devices, surgical interventions, of injury.
• Engineering design and analysis. A full range of engineering design and analysis services are available, including protocol development, programming and data analysis that facilitates investigator experiments. This service uses sophisticated software capable of mathematical and statistical analysis, numerical simulation, computer-aided design, and medical image processing.

Note: **This event requires advance registration and is exclusively for Exchange Members and Mayo Clinic employees, residents, and students.**
