This project seeks to develop advanced manufacturing and injection moulding of biomaterials to optimise surface properties. The project involves the development of smart technologies, including web-based pre-operative planning tools (automated segmentation of CT data, automated application of a statistical shape model, interaction with surgeons, intuitive user interface) and augmented reality tools for intraoperative applications. The launch of these products will further invigorate the medical technologies sector through these innovative solutions.
