ulsating water jet as an orthopaedic technique without thermal and mechanical damage of large joints with minimal traumatizing impact on patient (WORTH)
Start date: Mar 31, 2015, End date: Mar 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The overall aim is to develop and implement a surgical technique for orthopedic revision surgeries, which compared to usual techniques doesn´t damage human tissue and has limited traumatic effect. This technique is based on pulsation water jet (PJW).The aim within START is to create an international working team, prepare a feasibility study and organise workshops for project preparation with the aim to apply for H2020 funding and to orientate future activities. Expected Results: The project will enable the acquisition of essential information for the preparation of a detailed study to introduce the new technique in medical practice. This document will be used as a basis of the future project preparation in the framework of HORIZON 2020. In addition, the acquired information will significantly influence the orientation of future activities. Teamwork synergy will interrelate individual disciplines in the field of medicine, nursing and engineering in order to facilitate the knowledge transfer among team members.
