The second in our Made in Brunel Podcast Interview series, here you can hear all about Luke Kavanagh’s revolutionary idea to collect data using technology within a hip replacement as an early detection device for Osteolysis.
If you can get past my slightly screachy intro (sorry about that), you will hear all about Luke’s idea to use the hip replacement to store energy that can then be used to transmit medical data which would otherwise escape detection. Early detection is key to any medical treatment so for that alone this is a great idea but when you look further into the method Luke uses to do that detective work a world of possibilities open up.
If you’re anything like me, the fact that he uses lego in his prototype will win you over before you even start…
Please get in touch with Luke if you have any questions or if you would like to talk to him about the possibility of putting his idea into production!
