Research Group VisSim

VisSim is an interdisciplinary research group of the Institute for Computational Visualistics and MTI Mittelrhein, Institute of medical engineering and information processing at the University of Koblenz-Landau, Campus Koblenz. It deals with visualisation of human structures and their biomechanical simulation.
Specialists in the fields of computational visualistics, biomedical computer modeling, biology, sport science, and maths work in close collaboration with researchers and companies working on medical engineering to achieve innovative solutions for improvement of medical products and planning of surgeries.
Another focus of research is the analysis of movement and the arising change of strain within structures of the human body. Special attention is given to investigation and analyses of the biomedical impact of normal weight and obesity to humans' structures.

In the “Smombi 2.0” project, methods are being developed that determine individual biomechanical properties of the cervical spine from 2D and 3D image data.
The aim of the project is the development of a new intervertebral disc implant possibility of adjusting the individual lordosis.
The aim of the project is to develop a new application to detect the ligament insertion points.
