About our Project

Metal-on-metal hip replacements and their recent failure

During this project we aim to 

  • bring together engineering knowledge on failed hip implants with patient experiences - complete questionniare
  • record and document patient experiences with failed hip implants
  • build a public dialogue around the failure of this medical device and document ‘lessons learnt’
  • disseminate engineering knowledge with patient-relevance locally and nationally through public talks and workshops

This is a joint project between the School of Mechanical and Systems Engineering and Policy, Ethics and Life Sciences (PEALS) Research Centre.
