Members of the Centre for Joint Biomechanics attended the 2022 Australian Orthopaedic Association (AOA) QLD Branch Annual Scientific meeting held from the 18-20 February at the Sofitel Noosa.

The Australian Orthopaedic Association (AOA) is the peak professional organisation for orthopaedic surgery in Australia that provides high-quality specialist education, training and continuing professional development for Australian orthopaedic surgeons, is committed to ensuring the highest possible standard of orthopaedic care, is the leading authority in the provision of orthopaedic information to the community, and actively supports scientific research and orthopaedic humanitarian initiatives in Australia and overseas.

with over 1.8 million joint replacements completed in a single calendar year, the team were excited to present their research as part of the ongoing commitment to industry collaboration to transform personalised patient care in the orthopaedics industry.
