You will consider the design and development process of orthopaedic implants, and understand current medical regulations. You will also explore regenerative therapies and the regulatory framework that ensures the technology will benefit patients.

You will learn how stem cells are used for tissue engineering and explore how this technology allows human joint regeneration to occur before a joint needs to be replaced.

This course is part of the Medical Technology Futures program, which will enable you to explore cutting edge innovations, developments, and technologies in the field of MedTech.


What topics will you cover?

- What are the possible medical treatments for joint degeneration?

- Which joints can be replaced and how?

- The materials used for orthopaedic joints and how we ensure they are bio-compatible.

- The production and testing process for an artificial joint replacement.

- What is regenerative medicine and how does it work?

- How are biological scaffolds produced and what materials are they made from?

- Requirements for testing biological scaffolds and regulations which need to be followed.

- The future of regenerative medicine and technology.


What will you achieve?

By the end of the course, you'll be able to...

- Identify the materials used to create implants, their qualities and rationale for their use.

- Describe the manufacturing process of regenerative bio-materials and orthopaedic implants.

- Explore the regulatory frameworks and bodies who oversee this area of MedTech.

- Evaluate the merits and challenges in the use of regenerative tissue against the use of orthopaedic implants.

- Describe how regenerative tissue technologies could impact on anticipated future demands for improved healthcare.
