The Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices (MeDe Innovation) researches and develops advanced design and manufacturing methods for the Class III, musculoskeletal medical device sector.

This rapidly growing sector is experiencing strong demand for innovation in manufacturing processes, evolving environmental and regulatory requirements and calls for greater personalisation and increased reliability of medical devices.

Through our research focus on the development of advanced methods of functionally stratified design and near-patient manufacture, we aim to deliver cost-effective processes to ensure that patients receive the right product – featuring an enhanced standard of reliability and performance – at the right time.

The Centre is a collaborative research project which brings together expertise from the universities of Leeds, Newcastle, Nottingham, Bradford and Sheffield as well as a range of expert clinicians from across the UK. Our 12 founding industry members are embedded within our research projects, with many more forming an industry-wide network.

As part of the Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Medical Devices, dissemination of research and moving it along to adoption and commercialisation is central to our mission and we value input from those working across the medical device sector in the UK.

The network aims to not only inform, but also to connect, enabling businesses, policy makers, academics and clinicians to share information, knowledge and ideas and debate the challenges and issues facing the community.

Membership is free and it’s easy to join – visit the exhibition for further details.
