Kevin J. Deluzio, PhD


Kevin J. Deluzio, received his BSc (1988, Mathematics and Engineering), MSc (1990, Mechanical Eng), and PhD (1997, Mechanical Eng) from Queen's University. After completing his master's degree he spent three years with DuPont Canada (1991-1994). He received post-doctoral training at the Orthopaedic Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Deluzio began his academic career at Dalhousie University in 1999 as one of the first faculty members of the new School of Biomedical Engineering, with a cross-appointment in the Dept. of Surgery. He established the Dynamics of Human Motion Laboratory where his research focussed on the investigation of the biomechanical factors of knee osteoarthritis and its treatment. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Mechanical and Materials engineering at Queen's University.

He is interested in both non-surgical interventions aimed at slowing progression of knee osteoarthritis, and the evaluation and design of total knee replacements. Dr. Deluzio's work in quantitative human motion analysis combined with pattern recognition techniques provides the means for objective and sensitive measurement of joint function. Dr. Deluzio has served on the executive of both the Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society and the Canadian Society for Biomechanics.
