About the webinar:

Recent advances in 3D Printing and biomechanical technologies are transforming the treatment of bone and joint diseases through the development of personalised implants and surgeries. Manufactured quickly and at low cost, personalised implants could provide better outcomes for joint replacement patients, enabling a whole new era of point-of-care manufacturing of personalized implants with optimal function. This presentation will focus on the development of a seamless framework based on the Measure-Model-Manufacture-Manage (4M) for point-of-care manufacturing. Comprehensive biomechanical measurements will be used to build patient-specific biomechanical models to represent the underlying physiology of the human body. The models will be used to analyse various scenarios that are too expensive or infeasible to perform on patients directly (e.g., loading an implant to failure in the human body). The aim in the measure-model stage is to optimise implant / device design that considers all the biomechanical information prior to manufacture using 3D printing. Finally, the measure-model manufacture becomes a reinforcing loop that improves patient management and outcome.

About the speaker:

Professor Peter Lee’s research focuses on biomechanics of the human body, organs, tissues and cells, contributing to a wide range of interdisciplinary research fields in biomedical engineering, including biomaterials, medical devices and rehabilitation engineering. His group has developed multi-scale experiments and computational modelling techniques, spanning the whole body-organ-tissue-cell levels. These techniques helped further understand the basic relationship between mechanical forces and the human, which is vital for any medical devices and biomaterials development needed to prevent injuries or treat diseases. Professor Lee is the Deputy Head of Department for Research at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He is also the Director of the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Medical Implant Technologies. He is currently the Associate Editor for Medicine in Novel Technology and Devices, Frontiers in Pharmacology(Translational Pharmacology) and Deputy Editor for Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research.
