Ask the Expert: Biomaterials and Manufacturing from a clinical perspective

 

Wednesday 6th December 2017, 9.15am - 3pm

 

Trent Building (Room LG11), University of Nottingham

 

This event will give an overview of novel biomaterials from the perspective of an Orthopaedic surgeon and a Maxillofacial prosthetist. As biomaterials are expanding from bio inert prosthetics to next generation bioactive materials, the interaction of implantable materials with living tissue is transforming the medical field leading to less invasive and more effective treatments. The eventual commercialisation of implantable devices is governed by clinical demand and proven efficacy.

 

Repairs to hard tissue often require metallic pins, screws and plates to be surgically implanted. These fixation devices can then require further surgery at a later stage to remove them. This carries inherent risks to the patient, so it is attractive to instead use fully resorbable devices that will gradually transfer load to the healing tissue over time. One of the main hurdles to achieving this is the different degradation rates that can occur with resorbable devices, which can often lead to premature loss of mechanical properties, preventing proper integration and tissue remodelling.

 

This workshop will give an overview of the current research and offer attendees the opportunity to discuss the technologies with engineers, scientists and clinicians who work with it on a day-to-day basis.

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.
