Since childhood, I have been fascinated by mechanics in toys and machines. In orthopedic surgery the same fascination drives me for restoring the biomechanics and biology to help patients with diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
When treating lower limb deformities, there are many challenges in restoring biomechanics of bone, joint and muscle in collaboration with human biology. Thus, the primary focus of my research is to improve treatment of lower limb deformities.
To improve outcome in limb lengthening, my upcoming PhD project focuses on identifying complications in relation to intramedullary bone lengthening nails.
The second aim is to develop a model for wireless force measurements during bone lengthening with the overall goal to reduce complications through individualized treatment.
Other research areas: Assessment of bone healing with: Pixel Value Ratio and Electrical impedance spectroscopy.
