The Cardiovascular Biomechanics group performs research in the field of computational and experimental biomechanical analysis of the cardiovascular system. Aim is to develop computational models, experimental techniques, and medical devices for clinical diagnosis, decision support, and intervention. 

Inherent to the groups approach is the testing of these models and devices using data obtained from our in vitro setups, from isolated (slaughterhouse) in vivo beating heart experiments, and data from animals and patients, obtained in collaboration with our academic and clinical partners.

The research is directed along the three following topics;
