Not your average joint

No two people are alike, or walk alike, so LLJ partner Leeds Teaching Hospitals National Health Service Trust (LTHT) has been putting patient volunteers through their paces to get realistic movement patterns for developing simulation and test systems. In September, just under 100 hip replacement patients with friends and family gathered at Leeds University to hear how their contribution to the project has been used. Here, members of the LLJ team and testing volunteers talk about their involvement in developing better replacement joints.
