Research Thesis Topic
Conceptual design of an trial hip prosthesis embedded with compression and torque sensors
This project looks to identify opportunities to further improve on designing a trial hip prosthesis embedded with compression and torque sensors to provide increased levels of precision in hip operation procedures performed by orthopedics surgeons. Currently, the process is performed with a static trial prosthesis that relies on the surgeon's feel and touch (tactile) which are highly dependent on surgical experience. This project will involve initial scoping, definition, and evaluation of current designs, sensors, and/or materials, identify any constraints and parameters, and finally proposes conceptual design options that may fulfil the design objectives.
