The Orthopaedic Research Institute (ORI) was launched at BU in October 2015 and is led by Professor Rob Middleton and Associate Professor Tom Wainwright.

ORI works across Bournemouth University and with local hospitals, industry partners and academia to produce high-quality research and educational outputs that have a proven impact for patients, clinicians and society.

ORI is driven by the needs of patients, clinical colleagues and wider society to produce high quality academic and patient outcomes across the fields of orthopaedic surgery, related diseases, treatments, technologies and devices.

Current areas of focus include:

  • Non-surgical management of osteoarthritis
  • Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) and rehabilitation
  • Virtual reality surgical training
  • Robotic hip surgery
  • Medical device research and development

Any of these research areas could benefit from your support. Please contact the Fundraising Team for more information or make a donation online.
