    Kick-off meeting for SMART-HIP project
    Berlin, Germany
    24th of February 2014

    The 24th of February 2014, Merete MEDICAL GMBH, one of the consortium partners, hosted the SMART-HIP kick-off meeting in their headquarters in Berlin. The consortium is composed of 3 SMEs: Electronics Design Ltd, Merete Medical GMBH, Alhenia AG and 2 RTDs: the Rostock University (UNIVERSITATSMEDIZIN ROSTOCK) and Labor SrI- Industrial Research Lab.
    The project and its research, officially started on the 1st of February 2014 under Grant Agreement no. 606335 with the Research Executive Agency of the European Commission.

    The Project
    The main objective that the SMART-HIP Consortium intends to achieve is the development of a new intelligent hip prosthesis, enabling timely and accurate diagnosis of bone loosening, thus allowing for a fast and reliable support to the orthopaedists while deciding upon revision surgery of joint replacements.

    A significant amount of total joint replacements fail because the prosthesis becomes loose or because of osteolysis, and the prosthesis must be replaced. Bone loosening is usually diagnosed by radiography and clinical symptoms, but pre-operative radiographie diagnosis by loosening has a sensitivity of 80 %, and a considerable number of revision surgeries are not necessary because loosening of the total joint replaeement was diagnosed false positively.
    Currently clinically applied methods of assessing implant fixation and implant loosening are of suboptimal precision, leading to unsecure indication of revision surgery ilnd late recognition of bone defects.

    Project Coordinator: Natalia Girfanova (Electronics Design)

    The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013), managed by the REA - Research Executive Agency under the Grant Agreement n° 606335
