Résumé au format pdf + biographie de l'orateur

The nervous system and musculoskeletal tissues will repair or degrade based upon their functional neurophysiological and mechanobiological niches. These niches are the result of personalised efferent and afferent neural excitation patterns that are functionally consistent with the individual’s musculoskeletal motion and
loading, and their musculoskeletal tissues' morphology, strain and mechanobiology. To optimally promote repair of musculoskeletal tissues their "ideal" in vivo tissue strains must be attained, which can be facilitated using real‐time afferent biofeedback and/or movement assistance during the patient’s rehabilitation. Nervous system
rehabilitation requires the patient to perform desired rehabilitation movements that are coupled with functionally consistent muscle excitation (e.g. functional electrical stimulation) and afferent biofeedback. In both rehabilitation scenarios, movement assistance, muscle excitation and/or afferent biofeedback can be achieved via innovative and personalised wearable devices that are enabled by personalised digital twins of the patient. Personalised
digital twins are multiscale neuromusculoskeletal rigid body and finite element models, and/or their AI equivalent models, that can operate in real‐time. This talk will examine how this can be achieved, with examples provided.
