Basic Biomechanics and Experimental Methods for Joint Research

The aim of this workshop is to train clinicians and engineers, who are especially interested in joint research. It will allow the participants to gain knowledge in planning and conducting biomechanical experiments by a balanced mixture of 6 lectures and 8 laboratories. The number of participants is limited to 20 in order to guarantee a maximum efficiency for the single attendee.
