Paper on shoulder prostheses published

Nikolas Förstls work on designing a temporary shoulder implant for measuring shoulder stiffness has been accepted for publication in the journal of Medical Engineering & Physics. The work adresses the clinical problem of adjusting the pre-tension of the shoulder muscles when a shoulder prosthesis is implanted. We developed a temoprary device which allows for measuring the stiffness. This could be the basis for more reliable and functional treatment. The co authors in the study were Franz Süß, Carsten Englert and Sebastian Dendorfer. The paper can be read here:
