HBI Orthopaedics wins at Herston Health Symposium

Nicholas Green received the Professor Lawrie Powell AC Early Career Researcher Award for my work on ‘Optimisation of a Semi-Automated Custom HTO Surgical Guide.’

Shashwat Mishra, a third-year medical student Nicholas supervised as part of the same project, received the Professor William Egerton Award for Best Discovery and Innovation Research. His presentation on ‘Automation of the 3D modelling and corrective anatomical measurements workflow in Lower Limb Malalignment’ was a great reflection of all the hard work that went into this.

HBI Orthopaedics’ collective goal has been to streamline the production of in-house personalised 3D-printed surgical guides. The workflow has significantly reduced guide design time from 5 hours to just 30 minutes, from receiving a patient’s CT scan to finalizing the design and completing regulatory documentation.

Congratulations to all who’ve been a part of this journey (Divya Dayal, Garyan Sorto, Deniz U. ErbulutKevin Tetsworth).
