Smith and Nephew and Imperial College London announce new partnership

6th September 2017

Smith and Nephew has announced a new partnership with Imperial College London that will see the organisations working together to develop new and enhanced surgical techniques.

The three-year alliance aims to create new approaches relating to ligament function, biomechanics and soft tissue injuries of the knee, including the most common injuries of torn menisci and anterior cruciate ligament rupture.

Biomechanical research will be carried out examining extra-articular ligaments and their functions, with the partners also looking at the limited healing capabilities of the meniscus, to enhance understanding of the role of biomechanics in improving knee stability.

Andy Weymann, chief medical officer at Smith and Nephew, said: "By combining the clinical expertise of Imperial College with our pioneering approach to new product development, we expect to be able both to advance surgical techniques and accelerate the development of next-generation products."

This comes after the medical technology company announced a new long-term collaboration with the University of Hull earlier this year, which will focus on research into pioneering approaches to advanced wound care.
