Nano biomechanics is concerned with the basic and applied research in the broad field of joints, soft tissues, bones and other implants. It is an emerging field in Nano science and biomechanics that combines the powerful tools of Nano mechanics to explore fundamental science of biomaterials and biomechanics. Nano Biomechanics majorly focuses on the development of implants. Nano Mechanical Implants ranges from the inner workings of a cell to the movement and development of limbs, to the mechanical properties of soft tissue (Cardiovascular Biomechanics) and bones. Some simple examples of biomechanics research include the investigation of the forces that act on limbs, the aerodynamics of bird and insect flight, the hydrodynamics of swimming in fish, and locomotion in general across all forms of life, from individual cells to whole organisms. The biomechanics of human beings is a core part of kinesiology. As we develop a greater understanding of the physiological behavior of living tissues, researchers are able to advance the field of tissue engineering and regenerative Nano medicine, as well as develop improved treatments for a wide array of pathologies.

The human musculoskeletal system consists of two parts. The first part models the neuromuscular network that represents the relationships between the spinal nerve signals and muscle activities, which are then converted to muscle tensions using a physiological muscle dynamics model. The second part includes the feedback loops from muscle spindles and Golgi tendon organs to the spinal nerve that represent the somatic reflex using muscle length, velocity, and tension information. The musculoskeletal system provides form, support, stability, and movement to the body. Biomechanical Movement is completely dependent on Neuromusculoskeletal Biomechanics and their coordination which is very useful in the neurosurgery Biomechanics is also applied to studying human musculoskeletal system. Such research utilizes force platforms to study human ground reaction forces and infrared videography to capture the trajectories of markers attached to the human body to study human 3D motion. Research also applies electromyography (EMG) system to study the muscle activation. By this, it is feasible to investigate the muscle responses to the external forces as well as perturbations. The brain controls the movements of skeletal (voluntary) muscles via specialized nerves. The combination of the nervous system and muscles, working together to permit movement, is known as the neuromuscular system. If you want to move part of your body, a message is sent to particular neurons (nerve cells), called upper motor neurons. Upper motor neurons have long tails (axons) that go into and through the brain, and into the spine, where they connect with lower motor neurons. At the spinal cord, the lower motor neurons send their axons via nerves in the arms and legs directly to the muscle they control.

Clinical Biomechanics is an international multidisciplinary study of musculoskeletal biomechanics. The science of biomechanics helps explain the causes of musculoskeletal disorders and provides assistance to the clinician in the evaluation of treatment methods. Clinical Biomechanics aims to strengthen the link between clinic and laboratory by publishing biomechanics research which helps to explain the causes of musculoskeletal disorders and which provides knowledge contributing to improved clinical management. Clinical Biomechanics explores all facets of musculoskeletal biomechanics with an emphasis on clinical management. This discipline covered orthopedic and sports biomechanics, bioengineering, biophysics, ergonomics, kinetics, clinical science, Cardiac Biomechanics, Biomaterials, physical therapeutics and rehabilitation. This conference deals with the Kinesiology which addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms and it is the study of human and nonhuman animal-body movements, performance, and function by applying the sciences of biomechanics, anatomy, human physiology, psychology, and neuroscience.

Biomaterials can be derived either from nature or synthesized in the laboratory using a variety of chemical approaches utilizing metallic components, polymers, composite materials or ceramic. Medical implants are man-made devices, in contrast to a transplant, which is a transplanted biomedical tissue. It is often used and/or adapted for a medical application and thus comprises whole or part of a living structure or biomedical device. It performs augments or replaces a natural function. Such functions may be benign, like being used for a heart valve, or may be bioactive compound with a more interactive functionality such as hydroxyl-apatite coated with hip implants. For example, a construct with impregnated pharmaceutical products can be placed into the body, which permits the prolonged release of a drug over an extended period of time. A biomaterial may also be an auto graft, allograft or xenograft used as a transplant material. Present research and development is focused on Nano Biomaterials, and implant devices made out of them.

The Biomechanical Devices track investigates the application of technology to human biological systems. Areas of study include the mechanics of hard and soft tissues, human biomechanics, dynamics of human-machine interaction, and the design of assistive technology and medical devices. There is a need for a conceptual framework under which guidelines may be suggested for the evaluation of the biomechanical devices in some uniform and comprehensive manner. There are three basic biomechanical tests: strength, fatigue, and stability. The strength test evaluates the failure load of the device, determines its weak points, and is helpful in the initial development of the device. The fatigue test provides a measure of longevity of the device, either alone or as part of the spinal cord, by testing the device to failure using cyclically varying loads. In contrast, the stability test measures the capability of the device to provide multi-directional stability to the injured biological tissue/organ/bone/spine. If there is no failure of the device, then the results of test are clinically important, as they characterize the potential for early fracture healing and early fusion. This conference also deals with Bio mechatronics, Spine fixation devices, Multi-Scale Modeling in Biomechanics and Implants for Human Advancement.

Biomechanics is widely used in orthopedic industry to design orthopedic implants for human joints, dental parts, external fixations and other medical purposes. Bio tribology is a very important part of it. It is a study of the performance and function of biomaterials used for orthopedic implants. It plays a vital role to improve the design and produce successful biomaterials for medical and clinical purposes. One such example is in tissue engineered cartilage, Bone Remodeling, etc. Biomaterials can be derived either from nature or synthesized in the laboratory using a variety of chemical approaches utilizing metallic components, polymers, composite materials or ceramic. It is often used and/or adapted for a medical application and thus comprises whole or part of a living structure or biomedical device. It performs augments or replaces a natural function.

For example, a construct with impregnated pharmaceutical products can be placed into the body, which permits the prolonged release of a drug over an extended period of time. A biomaterial may also be an auto graft, allograft or xenograft used as a transplant material. Biomaterials are also used every day in dental applications, surgery and drug delivery system. Biomaterials can be defined as inorganic or organic materials that are biocompatible and can be implanted in the human body to replace or repair failing tissue

Biomechanics is the scientific analysis of human movement – the field of science that studies the internal & external forces acting on the human body and the effects produced by these movements. It’s based on Kinesiology (the mechanics and anatomy of movement), which was once primarily concerned with the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system. As the need for a better understanding about how everything works, Kinesiology merged with other sciences and Biomechanics was born. Using Biomechanics, anything can become more effective at producing force and efficient movement. Biomechanics is used to study crash analysis, passenger safety parameters in vehicles, ethics and applied ergonomics of occupational of biomechanics, forensic biomechanics etc. This conference also includes Dental Biomechanics, Forensic Biomechanics, vehicle safety systems and Plant Biomechanics etc.

Sports biomechanics is a quantitative based study and analysis of professional athletes and sports activities in general. It can simply be described as the Physics of Sports. In this subfield of biomechanics the laws of mechanics are applied in order to gain a greater understanding of athletic performance through mathematical modeling, computer simulation and measurement. In the term “mechanics” there are two sub-fields of study: statics, which is the study of systems that are in a state of constant motion either at rest or moving with a constant velocity; and dynamics, which is the study of systems in motion in which acceleration is present. Dynamics may involve kinematics which is the study of motion of bodies with respect to time, displacement, velocity, and speed of movement either in a straight line or in a rotary direction

Medical Imaging Technology is a discipline and is part of biological imaging and using technologies of x-ray, medical ultra Sonography, endoscopy, magnetic resonance imaging tactile imaging, thermography, medical photography and nuclear medicine. It seeks to reveal internal structures hidden by the skin and bones, as well as to diagnose and treat disease. Medical imaging also establishes a database of normal anatomy and physiology to make it possible to identify abnormalities. Although imaging of removed organs and tissues can be performed for medical reasons, such procedures are usually considered part of pathology instead of medical imaging.
