Professor Rickard Brånemark, Associate Professor Max Ortiz Catalan and Associate Professor Kerstin Hagberg receives the Henry Wallman Prize in medical technology 2019!
The team receives the award because they demonstrate how a good collaboration between representatives with different competences can combine basic research with surgery, medical engineering, and clinical work to create products and solutions that can benefit a large group of patients.
The team has developed a new type of prosthesis for patients with amputations. The new prosthesis is attached to the bone tissue in the amputation stump with an Abutment penetrating the skin. The signals from the nervous system that previously went to the intact body part are registered, the patient´s intentions are detected, and the prosthesis is thus controlled.
As the team includes rehabilitation in their work, the real-life use of the innovative prosthetic solution is ensured. The latter is also strengthened by the formation of Integrum AB; a company that further develops and markets the results.
