Biomechanics is the study of the structure and function of biological systems such as humans, animals, plants, organs, cells, and molecules by means of the methods of mechanics. At The University of Texas at Austin, our researchers apply engineering principles to understand how living systems function at all scales of organization and to translate this understanding to the design of devices and procedures that will improve diagnostic and therapeutic methods in health care.
