Welcome to the Institute of Biomedical Mechatronics!

The scientists at the institute are mainly working in five fields:

  •  Biomimetics
  •  Biological surface characterization
  •  Development of measurement devices in biology and medicine
  •  Development of mechanical medical devices
  • Theoretical modeling of biological processes

In the biomimetics field the focus is on the examination of biological effects and the development of possible technical applications.

Biological surfaces of interest are cell surfaces, especially adhesion proteins, adhesive organs and animals' integuments.

Measurement devices of interest are in the fields of microscopy, biomechanics, electrophysiology and cell-cell-interaction.

Mechanical devices like prostheses, blood pumps or orthoses are developed.

Theoretical modelling and analytical as well as numerical descriptions of biological processes are done in the areas of cell-cell-interaction, adhesion, optical properties of biological material and wetting phenomena.
