Hat-trick of awards

A collaborative research programme between the School of Mechanical Engineering and Orthopaedic Surgery has received its third and most prestigious award the John Moe Basic Science Award at the Scoliosis Research Society in Cairns, Australia.

As a result, the authors have been invited to present their research on burst fractures at the largest orthopaedic-related conference in the world the Annual Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in San Francisco. The team is looking into uses of high-speed video and pressure measurement techniques to study dynamic fracture processes in the spine.
