Engineering the Knee 2018
10-11 December 2018
London, United Kingdom
Engineering has a vital role in developing early interventions to improve the mechanical aspects of repaired tissues, non-surgical interventions, joint realignment and resulting kinematics/loads/strains within the joint, in addition to providing instruments for surgery and measuring functional outcomes. This conference will bring together engineers, clinicians, scientists and industry to address engineering knee replacement and rehabilitation issues which will serve as a platform for the future development of early and late-stage interventions in the knee.
ESB members can register at the same rate as IMechE members (Select ‘Member, Supporting organisation when booking online).
