Smith & Nephew, Imperial College to Study Meniscus Function

By Julie A. Vetalice

Smith & Nephew signed a 3-year partnership with Imperial College London to research meniscus function and the interaction of ligaments in the stabilization of the knee joint.

The US $1MM study, to be led by Professor Andrew Amis of Imperial's Biomechanics Group, will investigate functional anatomy and mechanical performance of joint elements; this work will in turn support the design and testing of devices to treat worn cartilage.

Imperial's Biomechanics Group is partnered with numerous members of the orthopaedic industry's research and commercialization chain, including clinics, societies, suppliers and device manufacturers.
