Orthopaedic Surgical Assembly Device

JRI Orthopaedics approached the AMRC with Boeing’s Medical Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (MAMRC) for assistance developing a device that will be part of the surgical kit for a new orthopaedic system.

The device will be used by surgeons to quickly construct implant assemblies in an operating theatre, during surgery. JRI asked the MAMRC to take its initial idea and turn it into a light weight, ergonomic surgical device, capable of being operated using only one hand, while also being sterilisable and suitable for an operating theatre environment.
