Advisory Board

The Advisory Board provides feedback on project progress and milestone delivery, and advise on future directions within and beyond the SPINNER project. The clinical and industrial representatives will provide advice from a clinical and industrial perspective and ensure that the ESR projects maintain their relevance throughout, considering important issues that are often neglected by academics such as costs of manufacture and processing, handle-ability, shelf life and surgery time required for the developed procedure. The academic advisors will provide advice on the best practice and complementary for ITNs within the broader discipline of orthopaedic biomechanics.
