Join ARU's Medical Technology Research Centre (MTRC) online for a seminar from Prof Philip Breedon, Professor of Smart Technologies at Nottingham Trent University (NTU), on a number of clinical and surgical projects being undertaken by his research group.

The following topics will be presented as a project overview: spinal robotics, rehabilitation systems, Virtual and Augmented Reality based interventions, smart material applications, and medical devices. Prof Breedon would also be interested in identifying and discussing any collaborative opportunities at, or following, the session.

Philip is the NTU lead for membership of the UK-Robotics and Autonomous Systems (UKRAS) network and is a member of the UK’s Department of Health National Institute for Health Research invention for innovation funding panel (NIHR i4i) and the Royal College of Surgeons MSK Robotic and Digital Surgery Subgroup.

His research interests and latest projects centre on new and emerging technologies and materials. This includes wearable technologies, 3D/4D printing, additive and subtractive manufacturing, rehabilitation technology, surgical robotics, cardiovascular devices, extended reality technologies and environments, the surgical pathway, and investigative research related to the utilisation of ‘smart materials’ for medical applications.

There's no need to book – simply join the Teams meeting at the time the event starts.
