Personalised and 3D printed implants to treat musculoskeletal injuries
Tendinopathy and osteoarthritis are disabling disorders associated with injuries due to the overloading of musculoskeletal tissues. Both are very prevalent in middle-age active individuals, causing disease burden and pain and needing long, costly treatment and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, no treatment ensures effective, long-lasting restoration of strength and functionality to treated tissues. To fill that gap, the EU-funded TRiAnkle project aims to deliver an advanced solution for patients with tendinopathies such as Achilles tendon partial ruptures and cartilage injuries. To that point, it will research to create innovative personalised collagen and gelatine-based implants manufactured with 3D technology, which will enable better and faster regeneration of injured tissues.
