The Swiss BioMotion Lab (SBML) aims to improve understanding, prevention and treatment of joint pathologies.

To this end, multidisciplinary research combining mechanical, structural, biological, and quality of life data is conducted to improve fundamental understanding of musculoskeletal pathologies. Nevertheless, SBML research is not limited to fundamental science. In fact the lab values a translational approach where knowledge gathered at the fundamental level are used to improve therapeutic options and inversely, where clinical experience is used to guide fundamental research. To reach this objective, research at the SBML is built around a pathology, not following a specific technology. Consequently, our research uses various technologies, such as biomechanical modeling and biomedical imaging, to study different factors of a pathology together.

Research at the SBML is also multidisciplinary in the sense that, in addition to clinical trials, the lab is very active in the development of novel diagnosis and monitoring tools. The SBML is particularly active in the design of gait analysis and modification methodologies as well as in the design of techniques to analyze biomedical images.

The SBML is interested in all joints and pathologies, but currently most of its research focuses on knee osteoarthritis.

The SBML works in close collaboration with the BioMotion Lab of Pr Thomas P. Andriacchi at Stanford University.
