BiographyArea of Focus: Orthopaedics and Trauma
Professor Oloyede is a world renown expert in the biomechanics of articular cartilage, where he has contributed significantly to innovations advancing understanding in the area of research; e.g. he,
- developed the consolidation mechanics-based approach to cartilage testing and the first tissue consolidometer that is used in research groups around the world to study cartilage fluid and load-carriage mechanisms non-invasively.
- has published over 100 papers, some of which have attracted citation in important references like GRAY's anatomy and the Bibliography of current opinions in orthopaedics.
- has been co-inventor of 6 intellectual properties, some of which are currently used in industry.
- has attracted over $7M in research grants with $4M from ARC, NHMRC and biomedical and orthopaedic industries in the last 10 years.
- is the developer of the new overlay element for finite element analysis of mixed biochemical and biomechanical responses of loaded articular cartilage.
