Research in engineering and health: an interdisciplinary challenge

MOBIOS Lab brought together researchers from Comillas ICAI, the "San Juan de Dios" School of Nursing and Physical Therapy and the Chemical Institute of Sarrià (URL-IQS) at the Engineering and Health Research Meeting (EASE)

MOBIOS Lab hosted the EASE (Engineering and Health Research Meeting), a meeting point for more than 50 researchers from Comillas Pontifical University, both from the School of Engineering (Comillas ICAI) and the "San Juan de Dios" University School of Nursing and Physical Therapy, and the Chemical Institute of Sarriá (IQS) of the Ramón Llull University.

Within the framework of engineering and health, the main presentations and technical communications covered a variety of applied research projects, placing special emphasis on the different diagnostic, computational simulation and experimental techniques developed. After the opening and welcome by the director of Comillas ICAI , Antonio Muñoz, and the deputy academic director, Jesús Jiménez, the first part of the day began.

This was led by researchers from ICAI and the Bioengineering area of the Institute for Research in Technology (IIT), who presented the most recent projects: in biomechanics of injuries and road safety developed in MOBIOS Lab; in 3D printing and bone regeneration; applications of cold atmospheric plasma in health; and implantable wireless sensorisation for the control of myoelectric orthoses.

The second block reviewed the main lines of research at IQS: cellular microbiology and biomaterials; artificial intelligence, computational neuroscience and neurobotics; and computational simulation, optimisation and validation with additive manufacturing.

Finally, in the third and last block, researchers from the "San Juan de Dios" University School of Nursing and Physical Therapy, more focused on impacts and injury prevention, presented projects on: biomechanics and sport; digital manufacturing; shock waves and elastography.

The conference sought to establish an interdisciplinary dialogue between researchers from the three participating centres. The interest in establishing future collaborations that arose spontaneously after the technical communications will be the germ of future projects that, from engineering and health, will come to face the new challenges of our society.
