The In Silico Biomechanics Laboratory (ISBL) is a research laboratory at the National Centre for Spinal Disorders (NCSD). The In Silico Biomechanics Laboratory was established in 2018 with the leadership of Dr. Péter Endre Éltes, Head of Laboratory, and Dr. Áron Lazáry, Scientific Director, and with the support of Dr. Péter Pál Varga, Founder-Director General of the NCSD.
ISBL aims to bridge medicine and engineering using the tools of in silico medicine. The Laboratory focuses on the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system, with a particular emphasis on supporting the surgical management of spinal pathologies, instabilities, and deformities.
The Laboratory uses various innovative and scientific methods in its research activities. These include the development of finite element models based on medical imaging (CT, MR), the production of individualised surgical devices using 3D printing, and virtual surgical planning.
