Journal Article
Dostanpor, A., Dobson, C. A., & Vanicek, N. (2018). Relationships between walking speed, T-score and age with gait parameters in older post-menopausal women with low bone mineral density. Gait and Posture, 64, (230-237). doi:10.1016/j.gaitpost.2018.05.005. ISSN 0966-6362

Background: The gait patterns of women with low bone mineral density (BMD) or osteoporosis have not been thoroughly explored, and when examined, often studied in relation to falls and kyphosis. Research question: The aim of this study was to investig... Read More

The effect of boundary constraints on finite element modelling of the human pelvis (2017)
Journal Article
Watson, P., Dostanpor, A., Fagan, M. J., & Dobson, C. A. (2017). The effect of boundary constraints on finite element modelling of the human pelvis. Medical engineering & physics, 43, (48-57). doi:10.1016/j.medengphy.2017.02.001. ISSN 1350-4533

The use of finite element analysis (FEA) to investigate the biomechanics of anatomical systems critically relies on the specification of physiologically representative boundary conditions. The biomechanics of the pelvis has been the specific focus of... Read More

Validation of a morphometric reconstruction technique applied to a juvenile pelvis (2010)
Journal Article
Watson, P., O'Higgins, P., Fagan, M. J., & Dobson, C. A. (2011). Validation of a morphometric reconstruction technique applied to a juvenile pelvis. Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part H: Journal of Engineering in Medicine, 225(1), 48-57. doi:10.1243/09544119jeim810

Three-dimensional reconstructions of bone geometry from microCT (computed tomography) data are frequently used in biomechanical and finite element analyses. Digitization of bone models is usually a simple process for specimens with a complete geometr... Read More

Masticatory loading and bone adaptation in the supraorbital torus of developing macaques (2008)
Journal Article
Fagan, M. J., Oxnard, C. E., Crompton, R. H., Dobson, C. A., Kupczik, K., O'Higgins, P., …Fagan, M. (2009). Masticatory loading and bone adaptation in the supraorbital torus of developing macaques. American journal of physical anthropology, 139(2), 193-203. doi:10.1002/ajpa.20972

Research on the evolution and adaptive significance of primate craniofacial morphologies has focused on adult, fully developed individuals. Here, we investigate the possible relationship between the local stress environment arising from masticatory l... Read More

Stereo visualization of 3D trabecular bone structures produced by bone remodelling simulation (2003)
Journal Article
Sisias, G., Ward, J. W., Grunchec, J. A., Langton, C. M., Phillips, R., Dobson, C. A., …Fagan, M. J. (2003). Stereo visualization of 3D trabecular bone structures produced by bone remodelling simulation. Studies in health technology and informatics, 94, 258-264. doi:10.3233/978-1-60750-938-7-258

Adult human bone is constantly being renewed by a process known as remodelling. For cancellous bone this renewal process occurs at the interface between bone and marrow where bone is depleted by osteoclasts and rebuilt by osteoblasts. This remodellin... Read More

Algorithms for accurate rapid prototyping replication of cancellous bone voxel maps (2002)
Journal Article
Sisias, G., Langton, C., Phillips, R., Dobson, C., & Fagan, M. (2002). Algorithms for accurate rapid prototyping replication of cancellous bone voxel maps. Rapid Prototyping Journal, 8(1), (6-24). doi:10.1108/13552540210413266. ISSN 1355-2546

A set of algorithms has been developed and evaluated for 3D and 21/2D rapid prototyping replication of 3D reconstructions of cancellous bone samples. The algorithms replicate a voxel map without any loss of fidelity, so as to increase the validity of... Read More

Stochastically simulated assessment of anabolic treatment following varying degrees of cancellous bone resorption (2000)
Journal Article
