Biomechanics

Two materials testing systems are available within the LECOR. They are used for mechanical testing of medical devices and materials. Several devices designed and tested in the laboratory have received patents. The GraftGrab, a device to fix soft tissue to bone for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery, was recently patented by LSU. Current studies include testing devices to repair broken bones in horses and humans.
