An Advanced In Vitro Hand Simulator (2023)

MQ Health Translational Orthopaedic Research Lab led by Associate Professor Sumit Raniga has developed an intricate and sophisticated cadaveric finger motion simulator that will offer unprecedented assistance to surgeons in understanding and treating hand injuries.

Using advanced mechatronic technology, the hand simulator moves a cadaveric hand in a way that mimics true physiological and in-vivo movements of the finger, with the ability to simultaneously measure biomechanical data.

This simulator will provide surgeons and hand therapists the ability to learn about the internal biomechanics of the finger and explore different surgical techniques to provide a much better quality of life for our patients.
