Description

On one hand, biomechanics is the application of the principles and techniques of mechanics to the structure and function of living organisms. On the other hand, robotics is a branch of science and technology that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots and automated mechanical systems. They promise to be two of the most influential lines of research in the twenty-first century, since they generate innovation in a wide range of research fields. They encompass areas such as medicine, healthcare, sports, logistics and distribution, manufacturing industries, and business technology. Both disciplines are inherently multidisciplinary by nature, involving mathematics, physics, biology, and computing.

The intention of this special issue is therefore to deal with mathematical work related to medical imaging and visualization, bioinformatics, exoskeletons, microelectromechanical systems and nanotechnology, new biomaterials and sensors, medical robotics, healthcare robots, injury prevention and rehabilitation, enhancement of patient and worker safety and quality, ergonomics, production, logistics and distribution applications, socioeconomic and management issues, and decision-making processes related to these disciplines. Devoted to applied mathematics in both biomechanics and robotics and to their integration, the objective of this special issue is to disseminate advanced mathematical research on biomechanics and robotics and their applications while promoting the integration between them.

We invite authors to contribute original research articles addressing significant issues and contributing towards the development of new concepts, methodologies, applications, trends, and knowledge in science. Review articles describing the current state-of-the-art are also welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Biomechanics and robotics: use of techniques from computational mechanics such Finite Element Analysis (FEA) or Multibody Dynamics Analysis (MDA)
  • New mathematical approaches, innovations, and challenges in biomechanics and robotics
  • Biomechanics and robotics: new trends in modelling and simulation.
  • Kinematics, dynamics and optimization procedures in biomechanics and robotics
  • Computer methods in biomechanics, biomedical engineering and robotics
  • Applied mathematics to deal with manufacturing, production, logistics and distribution, product design, ergonomics, management and socio-economic aspects, and (fuzzy) decision-making processes related to biomechanics and robotics
  • Mathematical approaches to human motion analysis, virtual prototypes, diagnosis, injury prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, sports performance, training techniques and development of materials and equipment by means of biomechanics and robotics
  • Biomechanics and robotics applications in medicine, work efficiency and risk factors among assembly line workers
