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.

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.
Due to the rise of the popularity of smartphones they've become a part of daily life for most people. As useful as those phones may be, they result in a bad posture for most people, namely bending over. To analyze how this can permanently affect the spine, the VisSim research group announces their new project SMOMBI (shorthand for SMartphone zOMBIe).
