Pioneering Research Project Wins Prestigious Award

 

CARTIS is proud to announce that a project involving our team won The Engineer’s hotly contested ‘Collaborate to Innovate’ Award in the Health & Wellbeing category. This was awarded for the ADEPT - Additive manufacture for Design-led Efficient Patient Treatment – project which is a collaboration with Renishaw PLC , Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (Maxillofacial Unit) and LPW Technology Ltd.

​ADEPT is a three-year project funded by Innovate UK and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The project focuses on advancing design and 3D printing in cranio-maxillofacial surgery in order to produce bespoke implants and its aim is to create new software to produce commercially viable implants using a method that is significantly more efficient than other existing technology. The prototype ADEPT software automates a large amount of implant design, which makes it easier to order patient-specific implants. 

The Collaborate to Innovate (C2i) awards recognise all aspects of engineering - from the biggest and boldest infrastructure projects to the most fundamental technology breakthroughs. Effective collaboration is the lifeblood of engineering innovation, and C2i was looking to uncover and celebrate some of the UK's most inspiring, innovative and effective collaborative technology projects. Judged by a panel of leading UK engineers winning entries had to demonstrate that they were innovative, collaborative and likely to have an impact in their field of application.
