LBO – Laboratory of Biomechanical Orthopedics

The Laboratory of Biomechanical Orthopedics (LBO) is dedicated to the advancement of techniques and technology for patient care in the musculo-skeletic system, through fundamental research, applied research, and teaching.


A multi-disciplinary approach is followed in each research project. The composition of our team (biologists, physicists, mechanical and material engineers, surgeons) allowed us to tackle all the scientific aspects involved in orthopedics. An important effort of our research is to translate the results obtained in the lab to a therapeutic solution for the patients. The close collaboration with the “Département de l’Appareil Locomoteur” (DAL) of the CHUV is then essential for this translation process.
