Abstract

Orthopaedics and Trauma Queensland is an internationally recognised research group that intends to develop into an international leader in research and education. It provides a stimulus for research, education and clinical application within the international orthopaedic and trauma communities. Orthopaedics and Trauma Queensland develops and promotes the innovative use of engineering and technology, in collaboration with surgeons, to provide new techniques, materials, devices, procedures and manufacturing techniques for medical devices. Its integration with clinical practice and strong links with hospitals ensure that the research will be translated into practical outcomes for patients. The group undertakes clinical practice in orthopaedics and trauma and applies core mechanical and electrical engineering skills to challenges in medicine. The research is built on a strong foundation of knowledge in biomechanics, fluid mechanics and automation and control, and incorporates expertise in cell biology, mathematical modelling, human anatomy and physiology. New knowledge is being developed and applied to the full range of orthopaedic diseases and injuries, such as knee and hip replacements, fractures, and spinal deformities. This is the inaugural annual report for Orthopaedics and Trauma Queensland. It gives details of the members and their activities in 2006.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
