QUT has a strong commitment to research, device development and treatments across a wide spectrum of medical bionic innovations. The university is continuing its tradition of highly innovative, real world solutions aligned to current and future clinical needs.
QUT is a valued Associate of Bionics Queensland. The university is actively engaged in facilitating new medical bionic innovations and related research in health, biomedical engineering, medical device design and manufacturing, robotics, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
With links to the ground-breaking work of the Jamieson Trauma Institute at Metro North Hospital and Health Services and other leading hospitals and medical research institutes, QUT is immersed in clinical practice. At any given time, the university is engaged in multiple projects to accelerate discoveries across musculoskeletal, orthopaedic and neuroscience disorders and trauma management.
QUT’s industry-leading innovations in human bionics are seated in:
- Neuroscience (including neurobionic treatments and brain-machine-interfaces)
- Biomechanics (with implications for bionic mobility)
- Medical devices and novel bionic applications (aligned with robotics, AI, VR and AR)
- Bionic implants (aligned with bone and tissue engineering / regeneration)
