About the Project

Proposed Training:
One HDR will receive training in medical device development, including design, computational modelling, materials selection, device manufacturing and testing, and regulatory knowledge, to produce a safe, viable, and economical device that meets market demands. Osseointegration will provide specific design inputs, materials of the current devices, regulatory expertise, and direct
access to patient feedback, as well as facilitate the manufacturing of prototypes.

Proposed Outcomes:
We will develop a connector to couple osseointegration implants to artificial limbs. This device will enhance the functionality and safety of osseointegration implants and will assist in promoting their widespread use as an emerging technology to improve the treatment of lower limb amputees.
