It never ceases to amaze me how there is always more to research, and always more to develop (plus of course the associated IP to protect).

Artificial hip joints have been around for a long time, and these days one could say they are seen as a pretty routine operation. Yet, as I did a bit of digging recently due to my Mum having a hip replacement, I came across this article that showed how there is always work to be done and challenges to overcome. It also brought back memories of the hours my PhD colleagues spent in the hip simulator lab – it was quite the place to be!

I haven’t yet read the book referred to in this article, but it’s now on my “interesting to read” pile.
