Ian M. Zeller

Senior Consultant / Ph.D. / Orlando

Background

Dr. Zeller is a graduate of the University of Tennessee and Clemson University specializing in biomechanical evaluations. His primary areas of expertise include accident reconstruction and injury consistency analysis. Dr. Zeller performs biomechanical analyses on cases involving: vehicle accidents, falling objects, slip/trip and falls as well as other unique cases of injury accident/incidents.

Dr. Zeller’s prior experience in academia includes clinical and computational analysis of the human body with a focus on orthopedic device design, implantation and evaluation.  He has published in peer reviewed journals and presented research at both technical and surgical conferences around the world. His Master’s and Ph.D. coursework focused on joint biomechanics with a specific emphasis in dynamics, vibrations, joint contact mechanics, as well as muscle control during static and dynamic loading applications. Using statistical modeling and prediction methods coupled with motions captured from human subjects, Dr. Zeller developed an advanced parameterized model capable of simulating and predicting knee mechanics for healthy, diseased and surgically repaired knees in living subjects of varying demographic groups, facilitating improved targeting of interventional strategies and techniques.
