Event Details

MeDe Innovation (The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices) is addressing the future opportunities and challenges in the design and manufacture of medical devices.

 

Our innovative design and manufacturing advances centres around three research focus areas: implants, biomaterials and regenerative devices for the treatment of musculoskeletal disease; where there is a growing demand for increased precision to deliver improved reliability and outcomes of medical devices.

 

The centre activities are addressing two grand challenges:

  • Manufacturing at the point of need
  • Stratified design and manufacture

 

The global market for medical technologies is set to   exceed $500bn per year by 2018, with a UK industry base valued at £18bn per year. Musculoskeletal implants, biomaterials and the emerging field of regenerative devices are major strengths in the UK, addressing a global market estimated to grow to $75bn by 2020.

 

The needs of an ageing population, the expectations of fifty active years after fifty® and the growth in healthcare markets in developing economies provide a real opportunity for growth in this part of the medical device technology sector.

 

However there are increased expectations and demands for enhanced lifetimes, cost effectiveness, more consistent patient outcomes and improved reliability. Stratification and increased precision, leading to improved reliability, is a key challenge in all areas of medicine and future opportunity for medical devices.

 

As we approach the mid-term of MeDe innovation, the conference will report on progress and advances in research, innovation, and translation of its three focus areas:

  • New approaches to manufacturing at the point of need
  • Manufacturing regenerative devices, biological and biomimetic scaffolds
  • Stratified design and manufacture of orthopaedic implants

 

The conference will include presentations and posters from industry, regulators clinicians and academic researchers, panel discussions, poster pitches and networking opportunities.

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.
