The Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices researches and develops advanced design and manufacturing methods for the medical device sector.
Our innovative design and manufacturing advances will focus in the first instance on class 3 medical devices for musculoskeletal disease, where the cost of device failure and need for throughout life reliability are high.
The Centre is a collaborative research project which brings together expertise from the universities of Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Bradford and Sheffield as well as a range of expert clinicians from across the UK. Our 12 founding industry members are embedded within our research projects, with many more forming an industry-wide network.
Our Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and is part of a wider programme of support for innovative manufacturing research centres.
