Orthopaedics and Biomechanics

Our research group is comprised of engineers, scientists, consultants, nurses, mathematicians, psychologists, veterinarians and environmentalists. Their sole aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of humans and animals through science based interventions. We aim for Keele’s expertise in the area of Orthopaedics and Biomechanics in Medicine (human and veterinary) to be recognised as world class.


Orthopaedics: An aspect of medicine that deals with the reconstruction, treatment, or repair of bones and their associated muscles in humans and animals.

Biomechanics: The modelling and analysis of forces, torques, pressures, temperatures, stresses and strains, and associated movement in animals: solids & fluids (liquids, vapours or multiphase).
