Event Details

Functionally Stratified Design and Manufacture of Orthopaedic Devices

Patient and surgical variations have major effects on the failure rates, patient satisfaction, pain scores and other quality of life outcomes of many musculoskeletal interventions.

Matching the right patient to the right product at the right time remains a challenge in the way devices are designed and manufactured.

Through MeDe Innovation, a new approach is being undertaken to improve testing methods and implement functional stratification into the design and manufacture process.     

This workshop will explore recent advances in pre-clinical testing which capture the effects of patient and surgical variability and the development of new products encompassing stratified design and manufacture.

A full event programme will be available soon but early booking is recommended.

  • Hear updates on the latest scientific progress from MeDe Innovation academic partners
  • Gain regulatory, clinical and intellectual property perspectives from experts in the field
  • Question expert panels for opinions and insights
  • Identify new opportunities and collaborations to exploit the emerging research

MeDe Innovation - The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices

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.
