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.
