Project description

Virtual Physiological Human Improving the treatment of lower back pain

The MySpine project aims to improve the treatment of lower back pain. Nowadays treatment and prognosis of spinal disc degeneration are still based on trial and error decisions from the surgeon, leading to numerous post treatment complications and eventual morbidity. MySpine is working on a rational engineering approach based on advanced ICT and predictive systems that are patient-specific.

The main outputs of the project are the creation of a prototype computing platform with a graphical user interface for clinical settings and a patient-specific database of the lumbar spine. This interface will give clinicians the ability to virtually explore patient-specific treatment outcomes of disc degeneration, from short-term biomechanical ending to long-term mechanobiological tissue evolution.

The MySpine project (www.myspineproject.eu) covers part of the "Virtual Physiological Human" (VPH), which deals with biomedical modelling and simulation of the human body.
