Bath Biomechanics Symposium 2014: Current Issues and Future Opportunities in Orthopaedic Research
Date: September 15, 2014
Location: University of Bath
The 10th Anniversary Bath Biomechanics Symposium:
Current Issues and Future Opportunities in Orthopaedic Research
Monday 15th September 2014
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Bath Biomechanics Symposium, we aim to create a broad programme of papers that highlight current hot topics in orthopaedics, and technologies that offer future prospects. These will undoubtedly define future research agendas. Orthopaedic research must focus on developing advanced technologies to improve clinical outcomes and meet patient expectations, against a backdrop of unsustainable demands on healthcare provision. New and developing technologies may have the potential to improve patient care, but must also fit within the drive to make healthcare more efficient.
Submissions are invited, from researchers and clinicians, which address any current orthopaedic issues and discuss potential solutions and opportunities for future research.
Examples of relevant areas include:
• New implant technologies and designs
• New manufacturing methods
• Surgical techniques
• Materials research
• Tissue engineering
• Functional assessment
• Standardised pre-clinical testing
• Challenges of introducing innovation
The Bath Biomechanics Symposium is a one-day meeting hosted by The Centre for Orthopaedic Biomechanics at the University of Bath. The program will include an opportunity to view the latest work being undertaken at our diverse research centre.
This year’s event is the 10th to be hosted by the centre. Past events have been very popular attracting a wide variety of esteemed key note speakers and chairs to discuss a number of key topics.
