changing demographics of patients associated with increasing lifespans,
more active lifestyles, and higher expectations, are placing unsustainable
demands on healthcare resources. Early diagnosis and intervention
for musculo-skeletal disorders may facilitate significant savings
in healthcare delivery in the long term. Too often, current treatment
is for end-stage disease, resulting in expensive surgery and poor
of early-stage disease include interventions such as re-alignment
osteotomies, partial knee replacements, arthroscopic procedures, tissue
engineering approaches, and recent advances in total joint replacements.
These can enhance quality of life, and slow down or even prevent disease
progression. Early diagnosis is a necessary prerequisite to early
intervention, and advances in modern imaging and patient functional
assessment technologies can provide valuable guidance to appropriate
Papers are invited from researchers and clinicians who have experience in any of these areas.
The Bath Biomechanics Symposium is a one-day meeting hosted by The Centre for Orthopaedic Biomechanics at the University of Bath. The program will include an opportunity to view the latest work being undertaken at our diverse research centre.
