Welcome to the world of Medical Implants!

An implant is a medical device made to replace a missing or non-functioning biological structure. Implants for medical applications are numerous and covers the whole spectrum of the medical field, ranging from a simple plate and screw for orthopaedic fracture fixation to as advance as a neural implant to treat conditions like Parkinson's disease. Research on medical implants and their related technologies are inherently multidisciplinary with research scope covering design, analysis, materials, manufacturing and biocompatibility.

Mediteg was founded in August 2006 to champion the research, development and commercialisation of medical implants and their related technologies. We believe strongly in the value of interdisciplinary pursuits in this challenging field where engineering techniques and technologies from various disciplines are utilised to address needs within the medical industries and healthcare services. Our areaa of interest include joint and dental biomechanics, cardiovascular and cardiothoracic fluid dynamics, prosthetics and orthotics, biomedical materials for tissue replacement, bone substitution, artificial organs and endosseus implants.
