The Sir Michael Uren Hub Building


Home to both cutting-edge academic research and industry translation, the interdisciplinary test facility offers a vast range of platforms and fixtures for mechanical and cadaveric testing.

Combined with state-of-the-art data acquisition and imaging techniques, the Injury and Reconstruction Biomechanics Test Suite enables experimental models over a range of physiological, dynamic loading regimes with detailed visualisation and quantification of the location and time of injury initiation and propagation.

The suite delivers a detailed picture of the mechanism of injury that we want to treat or mitigate, allowing for the quantification of the precise interaction between prostheses with human tissue and the evaluation of the efficacy of surgical interventions.
