The Experimental Orthopaedic Research group applies experimental methods on different aspects of orthopaedics. This includes research on human substances (biopsies, joint fluid, and retrievals), animal experiments and cell culture studies. Mechanical testing of structures, including live anaesthetized animals, and materials has been one of the main research methods. The experimental work in the laboratory is closely connected to ongoing or planned clinical studies, aiming to improve orthopaedic care of these patients in the community. Involvment of the clinicians is one of the strengths og the group.
