An Overview of the Centre for Custom Medical Devices
In this talk Dr Cox will give an overview of research being conducted with the Centre for Custom Medical Devices at the University of Birmingham.
The team’s work is focused on exploiting additive manufacturing processes to improve the performance of implants for the repair of bone tissue.
Dr Cox will share a number of case studies highlighting how we can expand the value of these devices beyond anatomical customisation adding functionality through the surface or altered implant designs. Alongside these examples she will also share work done by the team during the COVID pandemic to deliver a novel approach to personalise PPE.
