Biomechanics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Sheffield

We have 6 Biomechanics PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Sheffield

Utrasound as a healing modality for oral tissue

Project description. Low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) is used clinically in bone fracture clinics to promote wound healing and has been shown experimentally to promote cell migration with potential for wound healing. Read more

Effect of obesity on bone strength and implication on the risk of hip fracture

There is a clear and unmet need to address the diagnosis of hip fracture risk associated with osteoporosis. Whereas low weight is a well-documented risk factor for future bone fractures, a high body weight seems to protect against hip fracture. Read more

Robotics, Biomechatronics and Control

This project covers themes of bioinspiration for robotics and control but also include non-bioinspired areas that might focus on industrial or healthcare/medical applications. Read more

Developing an algorithm for detecting placenta abnormalities

The placenta plays an important role during pregnancy by transporting nutrients to the fetus. Occasionally the placenta does not function properly, giving rise to a range of issues such as placenta accrete and intrauterine growth restrictions (IUGR). Read more

Investigating plastic behaviour in immature bones

There are many differences in mechanical properties between immature and adult bones. While adult bones have been studied extensively, particularly in relation to non-healthy ageing and the risk of fracture, there has been a lack of study on immature or young bones and their mechanical properties.
