Research

CARTIS has led innovations in healthcare since 1998.

 

We are proud that our research is applied, which enables us to deliver social and economic impact to patients and the wider life science sector.

CARTIS is also heavily involved with other academic and economic activities. This includes post-doctoral research examination, peer review panels, journal paper reviewing, technical and medical advisory boards, organising international conferences, external examining, running training courses and commercial services. 

​Research Objectives
  • To become the pre-eminent UK centre for the research, development and application of advanced technologies in surgery and associated healthcare specialties.

  • To develop long-term international collaborations.

  • To provide specialised teaching and training in advanced technologies in surgery.

  • To assist in the transference of new techniques and approaches into clinical practice.

     

Research Outputs

 

Our work has consistently produced quality publications in a range of high impact journals, at conferences worldwide and in other reference material.

Research Projects & Other Funded Work

British Council, Newton Fund. Workshop - Enabling Equitable Access to Health: Embracing New Design Technologies. 3rd-9th Dec. 2018, S Africa. This work was supported by a Newton Fund Researcher Links grant, ID 2017-RLWK8-10536, under the UK-South Africa Newton Fund.  https://www.pdr-crpm-workshop.com/

 

UK India Education Research Initiative. Exchange research visits between King George's Medical University, Lucknow, India and PDR, Cardiff Metropolitan University. On-Going. www.comeddi.com  

 

Innovate UK / EPSRC grant - Additive-manufacture for Design-led Efficient Patient Treatment – ADEPT.  Between commercial and research partners (Renishaw PLC, LPW Technology Ltd, ABM UHB & PDR).  Feb 2014-Feb 2017.  This project developed & implemented a new supply chain and business model demonstrator that enabled Renishaw to address global market potential for its Laser Melting (LM) technology in the medical device sector.  EPSRC-funded research led by me underpins the new proposed approach.  

 

Cardiff Metropolitan University, Research & Enterprise Services, Accelerator Fund to foster international relationships with key potential collaborators in the European region.      

 

Cardiff Metropolitan University, Research & Enterprise Services, Getting Started fund (Dec. 2015-May 2016).  Pilot - Developing specialist shoes for lymphoedema sufferers.

Industry funding (Renishaw PLC) to undertake academic research, write reports and develop novel design solutions that support the application of metal additive manufacturing in personalised implant production.   

 

Welsh Government, Health Technology & Telehealth Fund  (April 2014-April 2015).  This project aimed to improve health and wellbeing outcomes, the safety of procedures and reduce costs to NHS Wales whilst also improving access to the most advanced techniques to rural and remote communities.  3D scanning, design and fabrication technologies were piloted in new healthcare applications, providing the foundation for on-going implementation and research projects.

 

Welsh Government, Knowledge Transfer Centre (KTC).  Centre for Patient Specific Medical Design.  Led by PDR.  The KTC developed a service to provide the patient specific design knowledge to medical manufacturers, the benefits of which were: improved products that positively impact on the health and well-being of patients; improved competitive advantage for each participating company; and, a positive impact on the Welsh economy.  

 

Welsh Government, A4B Feasibility Study, 2008-2009.  Led by PDR.  This study provided a foundation of evidence on the need for companies to diversify from mass produced markets to high-value bespoke design and production techniques.   

 

Welsh Government, Strategic Insight Programme.  2009-Feb. 2010.  This fund was used to embed a PDR team member within a small/medium size company to learn about their processes and offer assistance in their understanding of custom device production.

 

Welsh Government, Intellectual Property Development Fund.  March-June 2009.  This fund was used to explore the potential to protect novel ideas developed through research. 

 

Knowledge Transfer Partnership, 2009-2012, Performance Health Products. Academic Team member.  This Innovate UK-funded KTP introduced a key product design component within a rapidly developing small/medium size company keen to develop new market opportunities.
