Biomechanics and Impact Mechanics Laboratory

The Biomechanics and Impact Mechanics Laboratory (LBMC UMR_T9406) is a Joint Research Unit between IFSTTAR (French institute of science and technology for transport, development and networks) and the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (first University in France for health sciences).

LBMC is staffed by 40 permanent members, and around 20 Ph.D. candidates and 15 trainees with multiple backgrounds (engineering, medicine, biomechanics, computer science, ergonomics).

LBMC conducts researches in the field of transport for improving the comfort and safety of the users and in the field of health related to orthopaedics, sports medicine, and functional rehabilitation to contribute to the future of mobility and medicine.

At the national level, LBMC is a member of the Equipment of Excellence (EquipEx) “Ingénierie et Vieillissement des Tissus Vivants”, IVTV and a member of the Laboratory of Excellence (LabEx) “Physics, Radiobiology, Medical Imaging, and Simulation», PRIMES.

In recent years, LBMC has been involved in several European projects (among them the LBMC has coordinated FP5 HUMOS2, FP6 Aprosys (Sub-project Biomechanics), FP7 DHErgo , and FP7 PIPER  projects) and international projects (e.g. GHBMC ). The LBMC is also involved in the international network VPH Institute and the inter-university center BOHNES .


The LBMC is organized in four teams:
