Biomechanics is the discipline concerned by the application of the tools, methods and formalisms of mechanics and automation aiming to study human movement. By dealing specifically with the biological aspects of humans in motion, this discipline concerns the kinematic, mechanical and control aspects of posture and movement. This discipline promotes a multifactorial approach that allows for an infinity of possible solutions to be envisaged for each motion and each posture, and thus contributes to the understanding of human mechanics. Biomechanics permit the estimation of human capacities by using the principles of mathematics, functional anatomy and mechanics to explore and understand biological problems. The advantage of this discipline is to understand the musculoskeletal system in order to improve its potential. Taking into account personal factors offers the possibility to choose a particular solution allowing for the optimization of human mechanics. The aim of this Special Issue is to quantify the methodological advances in osteology in clinical situations. This Special Issue is concerned with studying and analyzing biomechanical contributions, bone diseases—including fractures—the interactions between bone and other organ systems, including cartilage, muscle, neuron, joints and spine, bone biomaterials and prostheses.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Osteology is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
