Dedicated to improving the quality of life of an ageing population


With a goal of 50 active years after 50 we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of an ageing population, it is our belief that our second 50 years can be as active as the first.

Driven by clinical challenges, we undertake solution focused pioneering research and education in the fields of medical devices and regenerative medicine, innovating and translating novel therapies into practical clinical applications.

Our expertise is in the area of musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems with our research focusing on three main areas - Joint Replacement, Tissue Re-engineering and Functional Spinal Interventions.
