New Strategies for Treating MSK Disorders: In-clinic Manufacture & Minimally Invasive Implantation of Material
Surgical techniques must deliver the optimal patient experience and the lowest life-cycle cost.
MeDe Innovation is seeking to develop effective therapies which are customised to the patient and disease state, aiming for delivery with minimum disruption - ideally allowing the patient to go home the same day.
This combination of efficiency, personalised treatment and minimised hospital stays for musculoskeletal applications requires new thinking in terms of the deployment of load bearing materials - moving the fabrication of devices closer to the patient.
This research workshop will examine how new approaches to materials processing and manufacture can help us achieve the right product, by the right process, to the right patient at the right time

When & Where
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.
