  • SpineFX Workshop: Regulations, Standards & Pre-Clinical Testing

    From Feb 27th through March 1st there is biomechanics workshop sponsored by SpineFX at TUHH Hamburg University of Technology. It is entitled ‘Regulations, Standards & Pre-Clinical Testing’.

    Target Attendees:
    Young researchers in the field of biomechanics

    Workshop Concept:
    Getting a medical device from concept to market involves much innovation, research, time, cost and paper-work. The aim of this workshop is to introduce researchers to many of the regulations, standards, test methods and typical problems encountered along this journey.

    Workshop Goals:
    Attendees will gain a basic knowledge of:
    •Methods to obtain industry standard testing
    •Understanding of the engineering side to patent law
    •Regulatory affairs
    •Best practices in biomechanical test set-up
    •Device path from pre-clinical testing to the market

    Interactive presentations will be given by well respected scientists from various fields and industries: engineering patent law experts to biomechanics lab specialists.

    Hands On:
    Attendees will be able to learn first-hand through practical exercises with topics including:
    •Strain gauge application
    •Fundamentals of testing with a hydraulic testing machine

    Funding is provided from the EU by the ITN SpineFX project in order to reduce the fees from the counter value of €1200 per person to a maximum of €300. For participants who register early participation is free.
