A database (clDB) of patient-specific anatomical models from different chondral lesions is under construction at Reykjavik University, Institute Of Biomedical and Neural Engineering. http://en.ru.is/sse/bne. The RESTORE database will be available for consultation using a web app developed with Python Flask library and designed with the non relational Continue reading
RESTORE will collaborate with PREMUROSA, a new Marie Sklodowska Curie Action Innovative training network focused on Precision medicine for musculoskeletal regeneration, prosthetics, and active ageing. As RESTORE, PREMUROSA is aimed to optimize and personalized the application of Continue reading
The BIOMOMENTUM testing machine has been successfully employed by ULM University to perform a mechanical mapping of the complete COPLA® Scaffold surface.
Peak loads in the human knee joint can increase by up to six-fold body weight during daily activities, like e. g. climbing stairs. In the frame of the RESTORE project, the COPLA® Scaffold will be implanted in a high-demanding cartilage defect. Therefore, it has to withstand such high mechanical loads. To investigate the initial mechanical competence of the COPLA® Scaffold prior to its implantation, Dr. Svenja Stein and Dr. Daniela Warnecke have successfully performed a mechanical characterization of the complete scaffold surface using the BIOMOMENTUM multiaxial testing machine.
RESTORE member Stina Simonsson gave a talk at the TERMIS-EU 2019 meeting in Rhodes in Greece. The title of her talk was 3D bioprinting iPSCs to recapitulate human limb bud development -an Osteoarthritis disease model.
