Department of Biomechanics

Hamidreza Jahandar, MS

Hamid joined the Biomechanics Department as a Research Engineer in August 2015, after finishing his graduate studies in Mizzou Motion Analysis Center at the University of Missouri where he worked on a range of computational and experimental projects. Although his main research focus at HSS is in knee biomechanics, he has applied his expertise to a variety of research projects including comparison of different hip abductor repair techniques, the effect of cervical spine fusion on the kinematics of the spine, a thorough study of the anatomy of the elbow, and developing computer simulation of sports surgeries. In addition to his research endeavors, he is the lead engineer in charge of developing a patented knee arthrometer in collaboration with a team of attending surgeons and physical therapists at HSS.

During his time at the Biomechanics Department at HSS, he has established a novel method to register 3D reconstruction of the medical images to physical world with unprecedented accuracy. He incorporated this method into the robotic testing protocols as well as anatomical studies in the elbow and the ankle.

Further, he has developed a novel cadaveric model to investigate the kinematics and kinetics of the knee and the hip during physical examinations performed by orthopedic surgeons. He has used the cadaveric model to analyze different clinical exams including Pivot Shift Test which was the winner of the prestigious Force and Motion Award at the 2017 Orthopedic Research Society Meeting.
