What does modeling have to do with bones? A video introduces us to Dr. Prinold, a biomechanical engineer. Dr. Prinold is working at modeling the forces incurred on a child's ankle. The idea is that the model will help doctors understand the progression of childhood arthritis better.
- Use as an introduction to a lesson on bone diseases
- Research other uses of modeling in the bio-mechanical field
- It would be beneficial if the class understands how the skeletal system of children is different than that of adults
- The video provides a look at the skeletal system from a different perspective
- The resource highlights a STEM career of a biomechanical engineer
