Abstract

The history of the Orthopaedics and Traumatology Research Laboratory (LROT) is summarized during the last thirty years. The approach, initially focused on bone biomechanics and strength of materials, underwent a rapid diversification as expressed by the list of research topics: monitoring of bone healing; bone strains measurements for different level of activities including microgravity and prevention of disuse osteoporosis; biological effects of electromagnetic fields; evolution of the viscoelastic properties of the callus during bone healing; improvement of the osteoinductive properties of bone substitutes produced by the Tissues Bank of the University Hospital Erasme; Kashin-Beck disease; SICOT telediagnostic, and biomechanics of threaded implants. Those topics, event the most fundamental ones, have immediate significant clinical applications allowing a decrease of the morbidity and an acceleration of the rehabilitation of the patients. The results show the need of multidisciplinary collaborations coordinated around one autonomous laboratory, able to handle specific protocols requiring a dedicate environment.
