Welsh Crucible

CEDAR are collaborating with Cardiff Metropolitan University and Swansea University in a multi-disciplinary project supported by Welsh Crucible. The project aims to optimise flowable composite material properties and examine the challenges in integrating sensors into composite specimens that allow real-time data acquisition and visualization. This work forms the basis of future developments towards enabling smart biomedical implants.

CEDAR’s role is to investigate where smart orthopaedic implants could fit within existing and future NHS pathways. We will investigate what potential impacts are both in terms of patient outcomes and healthcare resource use.
