Intra-operative Patella-femoral Resurfacing Kinematics


   Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences

  , ,  Applications accepted all year round  Competition Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)

About the Project

20% of patients suffering anterior knee pain are linked to abnormal patella-femoral kinematics. Eventum Orthopaedics Ltd., a Yorkshire based medical SME, has developed novel patella alignment sensing technology to aid intra-operative planning and surgical execution. They wish to partner with the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) at the University of Leeds to help better understand the patella-femoral kinematics in relation to their device and in developing informed evidence-based pre-clinical testing strategies. With the worlds largest independent facilities for pre-clinical testing of joint replacements, the School of Mechanical Engineering and the supervision team offer excellent support / opportunity to be involved in the development of a novel orthopaedic medical device. 


Funding Notes

A highly competitive EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership Studentship in collaboration with Eventum Orthopaedics consisting of the award of fees with a maintenance grant of £16,062 per year for 3.5 years.
