The university now has two Codamotion systems, totalling five CX1 units, two active hubs and a toolbox of other accessories. The systems are used in conjunction with Kistler force plates and EMG systems from both Noraxon and TMSI.
The tendon research group is interested in characterizing tendon mechanobiology in health and disease throughout life. Taking a hierarchical approach, the group investigate tendon behaviour from a whole body level (in vivo) right down to sub-cellular mechanics.
By understanding structure, function and mechanics in healthy tissue first, the group are building a picture of the changes which occur in injury and disease and why they occur, so they can begin finding treatments to prevent or cure these.
