Embracing new design technologies: enabling equitable access to health – South Africa Workshop

From patient-specific implants to high-tech rehabilitation aids, digital design technologies are revolutionising healthcare. However, despite both enthusiastic press coverage and high levels of academic interest, there are numerous barriers that prevent healthcare systems from routinely using these methods.

PDR's Surgical & Prosthetic Design team has teamed up with CRPM (Centre for Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing) in South Africa to carefully consider these barriers.

Thanks to funding from the British Council's Newton Fund, PDR and CRPM can bring experts and early career researchers from multiple disciplines together in a workshop. The intention of this workshop is to develop a consensus on how digital technologies can be implemented, and to identify effective ways to direct future research in this area.

This is a competitive call
