Location: W. Ostwaldi Str 1, Tartu
Employees of the group
Research is carried out in the field of contemporary biomedical engineering. In the teamwork led by Arved Vain (Dr. Habil. Biol.), a unique medical diagnostic device – myometer for the measurement of human skeletal muscle tone and biomechanical properties – has been worked out. This device has been selected by the European Space Agency (ESA) for use in medical examination of astronauts. Development of new version of myometer (see patent publication WO2012/089221) and improvement of the measurement method is going on. The field of activities includes also theoretical issues of skeletal muscle physiology and biomechanics.
