BioRobotics and Mechanical Testing Core (BRMTC) is a center of excellence for biomechanical testing of biological structures and biomaterials.

Our Mission
is to establish and advance world class facilities to allow investigators to conduct high quality research of the mechanical properties of existing biological structures and constructs, as well as to quantify the potential for new technologies and clinical advancements.
Robotic Universal Musculoskeletal Simulator Systems

The simVITRO based UMS allows researchers to simulate loading conditions on a cadaveric joint by using actuators to simulate muscle forces while simultaneously applying external loads to the joint. Applications of this type of testing are numerous and can be used to provide insights into orthopaedics, joint kinematics, surgical techniques, disease pathologies, and many other areas. read more

Role of the Native Fiber Bundles of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament in Knee Joint Kinematics

Anatomical descriptions of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) typically describe two distinct fiber bundles, the anterior-medial bundle (AMB) and the posterior-lateral bundle (PLB). The aim of this study was to determine the role of the native AMB and PLB via robotic testing in a cadaver model with and without weightbearing loading conditions. View Portfolio
