Surgical techniques are often learnt on costly, unrealistic models. In this project you’ll combine engineering technologies, medical expertise and smart design to create a new generation of training tools for surgeons.
You’ll work with our clinical team, including vascular and veterinary surgeons from Sydney and Melbourne Hospitals, to develop customised solutions for surgical trainees to learn complex new techniques more effectively.
The surgical training tools under development include:
We’ll design and build customised surgical trainers, using techniques such as ballistic gel, 3D printing and augmented reality. The aim is to create highly affordable solutions so these effective training techniques are available to all.
Each application will be specified by one of our surgical collaborators and requires a unique solution, which will then be tested and trialled. Finally, your customised solution must be packaged as a user-friendly, functional product.
We will form teams that combine students from Engineering, Medicine and Design, to work on one of the specific training solutions, with the relevant clinical collaborator as your mentor.
All degrees are welcome however, students specialising in the below areas are encouraged to apply.
