We were delighted to welcome Professor Edward Draper from the Sheffield based medical technology company JRI Orthopaedics to speak to Newton Society (our society for Physics, Maths and Engineering) this week.

Professor Draper is well known as an innovator and inventor in Medtech, and he spoke to us about the mechanics of the joints and the musculoskeletal system. We also heard about how engineering is helping to improve hip replacement technology.

It was fascinating and inspiring for the students to hear about how Physics and Engineering can be applied to Biological systems.
