Facilities 1

Treadmill Analysis Laboratory

Treadmill Analysis Laboratory

We use the instrumented treadmill to assess patients' gait before and after arthroplasty, and for biomechanical kinetic analysis for a range of studies.

Facilities 2

The Surgical Skills Laboratory

The Surgical Skills Laboratory

The laboratory is fully equipped for dry bone workshops, with a seminar room opposite, and the anatomy lab directly above it. The space is designed to enable groups to acquire skills with a range of technologies that simulate the feel of a real operating theatre. Instruments are also available to test both the position and orientation of any procedure, and the mechanical strength of the construct

3D printer facility

3D Printing

The MSK Lab has a SLS (selective laser sintering) 3D printer which sinters powdered nylon together to build its parts. During a build, a laser sinters the powder together in 0.1mm layers. The machine has an effective build envelope of 200 mm x 250 mm x 330 mm and builds parts roughly at 20 mm per hour. This printer is high end and creates flexible and strong parts. The printer is used to build patient specific guides and other tools that are used by surgeons in the operating theatre. The lab also has a smaller Object 3d Printer which uses a light sensitive resin to build parts. This machine is used for prototypes. 

Both printers are available to use for a fee. For further details please contact:
