  • Markus has been interviewed by the VPH Institute regarding the project.
    "MXL is a EC co-funded project, whose main goal is to enhance the safety of osteoarthritis patients undergoing surgery using computational modelling from clinically available x-rays, so to minimize the risk of overload and instability for optimized function and joint longevity. The project has recently closed, bringing some outstanding outcome. A short interview with the Coordinator, Markus Heller - University of Southampton, will talk us through the project."
