Modélisation Musculo-Squelettique Personnalisée du Rachis Cervical

Abstract : Within the context of the scientific program chaired by BiomecAM, the musculoskeletal modelling of the cervical spine responds to various needs: understanding the damage mechanisms to this functional and essential structure, augmenting the efficiency level of pathology prevention, contributing to the design of new medical devices (orthoses or implants) and enabling orthopaedic and surgical treatment planning. Strong advancements have been made during the recent past years to evolve towards personalised modelling: innovative finite element mesh generation methods, in vivo quantitative analysis techniques to personalise the assignment of material properties to the intervertebral disc and the muscular system and preliminary models incorporating muscle activation have been developed.The aim of this PhD project is to exploit these scientific advancements to evolve towards a personalised musculoskeletal model of the intact, degenerated and instrumented cervical spine, thus contributing to the understanding of the degeneration mechanisms of the cervical spine and offering a means of orthopaedic and surgical treatment planning.
