Technologies for biomechanical assessment

At the Instituto de Biomecánica (IBV) we take the scientific knowledge we gain by studying and analysing human functions and turn it into solutions to measure biomechanical variables, thus enabling a variety of problems associated with the study of human motion to be analysed.

These technologies have been adapted to the needs of healthcare professionals involved in managing pathologies affecting the locomotor system, as well as specialists in the evaluation of bodily damage, rehabilitation, traumatology, sports medicine and otorhinolaryngology. Our technologies’ level of versatility and open configuration have made them the gold standard in research fields related to biomechanics in medicine, sports and the workplace.

Our solutions consist of software and a combination of dynamic and kinematic recording techniques that enable a complete evaluation laboratory to be set up.

Software

Our biomechanical evaluation applications are the result of combining protocols for measurements, biomechanical variables that classify the population as normal or pathological, expert information analysis systems, and indices made up of clinical evaluation criteria.

Our devices meet the requirements set out in Directive 93/42/EEC on Medical Devices and its transposition into Spanish law via RD 1591/2009, bearing the CE marking in accordance with said regulation.

Our organisation is licensed by AEMPS as a manufacturer of medical devices with no. 5098-PS.
