Keeping the body healthy

Within the framework of the theme « Keeping the body healthy », the LBMC's scientific project focuses on the integrity of the musculoskeletal system and functional capacities throughout life.

The research works proposed at the LBMC are based on a personalised approach to prevent and predict the evolution of pathologies and to assess clinical treatments in collaboration with health professionals (orthopaedic surgeons, radiologists, rheumatologists, functional rehabilitation doctors, physiotherapists, osteopaths).

Within this theme, two axes of research have been identified:

« Functional capacities throughout life» which represents a societal issue and leads to the following challenges:

  • Helping to prevent, diagnose and monitor chronic pathologies, or in sports traumatology
  • Helping to maintain good health and longevity at work
  • Supporting the transformation of medicine towards the "4Ps" (personalised, predictive, participative, preventive)

« The repaired body: the implant in itsenvironment», which involves an industrial issue and includes the following challenges

  • Contribute scientifically to the regulatory evolution (FDA regulatory science): define biomarkers, simulate the standard, help with "reliability design", help with "in silico trials”
  • Contribute to the development of implants: hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, 3D printing of substitutes, custom implants, biodegradable implants
