Schematische Darstellung des Silver Mobility Projekts in Verbindung mit dem eRolliTU Ilmenau

Rollators are among the most widespread systems of mobility aids currently available. Their core function is comparable to both a mobile railing and a mobile seat. (learn more)

Bite Force

Visualisierung einer BeißkraftvorrichtungTU Ilmenau

Bite force is a factor that significantly affects feeding and social behaviour in vertebrates. It can be considered a performance trait that is directly linked to an individual's evolutionary fitness (REFS). (learn more)


Schematische Darstellung der CilienbewegungTU Ilmenau

Cilia (lat. singular cilium for cilium) are hair-like plasma extensions of eukaryotic cell membranes. They are used for locomotion in unicellular organisms and occur on organ systems in multicellular organisms. (learn more)


Röntgenaufnahme einer Hüftgelenk-EndoprotheseTU Ilmenau

The number of hip and knee prosthesis operations is steadily increasing. In combination with demographic developments and the frequent occurrence of periprosthetic complications, this means that the need for revision surgery is also becoming more frequent. (learn more)
