Orthopaedics and trauma Queensland - Annual report for 2006
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.
