Hand and Upper Limb Centre at St.
Joseph's Health Centre has a comprehensive
research program extending from bench-top experiments to clinical outcome
studies. The Bioengineering Research Laboratory is focused on a wide range
of studies, including joint kinematics, fracture and implant fixation,
implant development, and tendon biomechanics.
The Bioengineering Research Laboratory is directed by Dr. James Johnson, a
mechanical engineer, and orthopaedic surgeons Dr. Graham King and Dr. David
Chess. We presently have six graduate students and numerous undergraduate
students working in association with orthopaedic fellows and residents, on
a wide range of biomechanical studies.
This web site is designed to introduce you to our research program, while
offering prospective graduate students or residents the opportunity to
acquire pertinent information. During your tour of this site, please feel free to
