The Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia participates 16 and October 17, 2014, at the third meeting of ORTHOBIOMED (The Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia participates 16 and October 17, 2014 at the third meeting of ORTHOBIOMED project (On-line transfer project in Osteosynthesis for Surgical Management of Fractures for Orthopedic Surgeons and Biomedical Engineers), held in Larissa (Greece).
The main objective of the meeting is to review the preparation phase of eLearning content and planning the pilot test.
ORTHOBIOMED is a cofinanced project (Leonard da Vinci program). This project is aimed at adapting and integrating innovative training courses and results from previous Leonardo da Vinci project into continuing VET of medicine professionals (residents, surgeons) and professionals involved in implants development and manufacturing.
The project consortium involves training organisations and universities, hospitals and university clinics. All partners participated in a number of projects within the EU LLL programmes. The consortium consists of medical specialists who provide clinical cases and materials on fracture surgery and diagnosis (MUP, DOS), experts in biomechanics (IBV), experts in educational technology and e-learning materials development and delivery (TeLearn - TUS); institutions providing continuing education for professionals in mechanical engineering (FBE at TUS, IBV) and in orthopaedics (MUP, DOS).
