The winners of the Henry Wallman Prize in medical technology 2019 

The Foundation for Biomedical Engineering (Stiftelsen Medicin & Teknik) has awarded the 2019 Henry Wallman prize in Medical Technology to Professor Rickard Brånemark (orthopaedic surgeon), Associate Professor Max Ortiz Catalan (biomedical engineer) and Associate Professor Kerstin Hagberg (physiotherapist), for demonstrating how good collaboration between representatives for different competences can combine basic research with surgery, medical engineering and clinical work, to create products and solutions that can benefit a large group of patients. The team has developed osseointegrated prostheses for patients with amputated limbs, including a new type of upper extremity prosthesis. The new prosthesis is attached in the bone in the amputation stump with an abutment penetrating the skin. The nerve signals that earlier went to the intact arm are registered, the intentions of the patient are detected and the prosthesis is thus controlled. As the team included rehabilitation in their work, the real-life use of the innovative prosthetic solution is ensured. The latter is also strengthened by the formation of Integrum AB, a company that further develops and markets the results.

The prize consists of a diploma and 50.000 SEK to be shared among the winners. The award will be delivered during an official prize ceremony in the Autumn, to be announced by MedTechWest.

Peter Thomsen invald i Kungliga Ingenjörsvetenskapsakademien (IVA)

UPPDRAG. Kungl. Ingenjörsvetenskapsakademien (IVA) förstärker sin kompetens och kunnande med hela tjugo nya ledamöter. En av de invalda är Peter Thomsen, professor i medicinsk biomaterialforskning vid Sahlgrenska akademin.

– Det är en stor ära att bli invald. IVA sätter fokus på många viktiga samhällsfrågor. Mina förväntningar är att få en ökad kunskap genom IVAs nätverk. Jag hoppas att kunna bidra till att vi kan bibehålla och helst stärka Sveriges internationella konkurrenskraft inom medicinsk teknik och tillhörande materialområden, säger Peter Thomsen i en artikel i Akademiliv.

Associate Professor Margarita Trobos has received funding for the project "Biofilm Infection Control (BIC), novel approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic periprosthetic and wound infections”, and will be a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow during the project period from September 2018 to August 2019.

The project has received SEK 870,000 funding of which SEK 586,500 is financed by MoRE2020 (Region Västra Götaland, VGR) and SEK 283,500 are funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 754412.

The aim is to create a long-term cooperation between the Public University of Navarre (UPNA) and the University of Gothenburg in the fields of life science and materials. Collaborating end-users for the project are Mölnlycke Health Care AB, and Sahlgrenska University Hospital Department of Orthopaedics and Department of Infections Diseases.

At present, the MoRE2020 Fellow Margarita Trobos is participating in the outgoing mobility from the University of Gothenburg (Gothenburg, Sweden) to Navarrabiomed - Biomedical Research Center / UPNA (Pamplona, Spain).
