0 Programs with Andrew Rentschler, Ph.D.
Dr. Rentschler received a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Biomedical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He then went on to obtain a Masters of Science and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh. While at the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Rentschler’s research included investigating the biomechanics of gait and falls in order to mitigate related injuries through the design of an autonomous robotic walker, as well as three dimensional motion and force analyses to study the biomechanics of shoulder, wrist, and spine injuries in wheelchair users. He has overseen clinical studies of live human subjects and participated in testing with anthropomorphic test devices (ATD) to gauge injury potential. Dr. Rentschler has completed advanced coursework in the fields of biomechanics, kinematics of the human body, biomaterials, engineering mechanics, and anatomy
Dr. Rentschler’s academic and professional experience represents an extensive combination of mechanical and biomechanical engineering, including human kinematic analysis, ATD testing, and human anatomy and physiology. Currently, he specializes in the study of the kinematics and kinetics
of the human body, injury mechanisms, and associated tolerances.
