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. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gaitpost.2018.05.005

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. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.medengphy.2017.02.001

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

Journal Article
Montgomery, G., Abt, G., Dobson, C., Smith, T., & Ditroilo, M. (2016). Tibial impacts and muscle activation during walking, jogging and running when performed overground, and on motorised and non-motorised treadmills. Gait and Posture, 49, 120-126. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gaitpost.2016.06.037

Purpose To examine tibial acceleration and muscle activation during overground (OG), motorised treadmill (MT) and non-motorised treadmill conditions (NMT) when walking, jogging and running at matched velocities. Methods An accelerometer recorded acce... Read More

Assessing mechanical function of the zygomatic region in macaques: validation and sensitivity testing of finite element models (2006)
Journal Article
Kupczik, K., Dobson, C. A., Fagan, M. J., Crompton, R. H., Oxnard, C. E., & O'Higgins, P. (2007). Assessing mechanical function of the zygomatic region in macaques: validation and sensitivity testing of finite element models. Journal of anatomy, 210(1), 41-53. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1469-7580.2006.00662.x

Crucial to the interpretation of the results of any finite element analysis of a skeletal system is a test of the validity of the results and an assessment of the sensitivity of the model parameters. We have therefore developed finite element models... Read More

Three dimensional stereolithography models of cancellous bone structures from μCT data: Testing and validation of finite element results (2006)
Journal Article
Dobson, C. A., Sisias, G., Phillips, R., Langton, C. M., & Fagan, M. J. (2006). Three dimensional stereolithography models of cancellous bone structures from μCT data: Testing and validation of finite element results.
