Simulator tests replacement joints to the limits

Early achievement for EU-funded LifeLongJoints project

LLJ SME partner SimSol has been able to capitalise on early results from LLJ for the development of a new mechanical wear simulator. This new generation of simulator means orthopaedic implants can be tested for the whole range of adverse wear on hip implants encountered by those choosing to live an active post-operation lifestyle. The technology has considerable commercial potential in western markets and in Asia, as described by SimSol’s CEO Nick Eldred in this video interview.
