JointPRO – facing the Imperial Dragons & winning awards

A huge congratulations is in order to the team at the MSk Lab who have been working on developing Joint Pro and putting in many hours to hone their presentations and pitches – which has really paid off. Within the space of a couple of weeks, Joint PRO has won two awards to continue developing the system ready for launch in the next couple of weeks.

Based on the success of social media in revolutionising the uploading and sharing of information, we have developed JointPRO, a remote web-based tool that electronically captures joint-specific patient reported outcomes (PROs), giving feedback to the patient, and relaying real-time information to the care provider.

Imperial College is the invited guest at the national orthopaedic conference in PARIS.

Barry Andrews, Peter Reilly, Roger Emery, Ulrich Hansen, and Justin Cobb among others gave papers on the programme of research happening in college. It was clear that the technology base of imperial is admired and valued in France. The health economics presented by Barry Andrews was particularly well received, despite having to undergo simultaneous translation.
