Mads Jarner Brevadt is a biomedical engineer working within the Msk Lab at Imperial College. Mads completed his Master’s Degree in Medicine & Technology, which is an interdisciplinary education jointly offered by the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen, with the primary focus on biomedical signal processing, medical imaging and biomedical product development. Mads completed part of his Master’s Degree at the University of California Berkeley at the department of bioengineering.

In the MSk Lab, Mads works on several projects, including

  • Testing patients and evaluating the gait of people before and after arthroplasty, investigating objective outcomes of the kinetic, spatial and temporal gait characteristics, investigating if some orthopaedic implant designs are better than other
  • Investigating if acoustic emissions from joints relates to osteoarthritis, or can detect implant malfunction
  • Segmenting CT scans of hips, knees and ankles to generate 3D models, for planning accurate surgery for hip and knee arthroplasty
  • Development of web platforms for patient and public interaction

Mads' main focus is on data science, and applying it to a variety of datasets.

Prior to joining the MSk lab, Mads worked in medical device Startup Company, developing equipment for intra-cardiac recordings, during catheter ablation procedures.
