Associate Professor Sumit Raniga is a member of The European Society for Surgery of the Shoulder and Elbow (SECEC ). The MQ Health Translational Shoulder Research Program had three original scientific articles accepted at this years annual scientific congress in Dublin, Ireland.
This was the first time Dr Raniga presented the MQ Health Translational Shoulder Research Programs highly sophisticated, eight muscle actuated, six degree of freedom in vitro cadaveric shoulder simulator to European Surgeons. This advanced robotic simulator moves a human cadaveric shoulder just like your shoulder. It allows us to understand normal shoulder biomechanics, changes that occur with disease, and the development of new surgical techniques to restore normal biomechanics. This advanced simulator allows us to better evolve and develop new generation shoulder replacement prosthesis. This advanced simulator created great interest and excitement amongst the European surgeons.
The MQ Health Translational Shoulder Research Program has now attracted nearly 2 million dollars of external grant funding since it was established by Associate Professor Raniga in 2019.
