Biomechanics

Recent student research includes:

 • Jack Erickson, under the guidance of Dr. S. Andy Sems (alumus and surgeon at Mayo Clinic) and Dr. Michelle Clauss, designed a flexible, variable diameter reaming head which would cut and clear debris from the interior canal of leg bones. The new design which provides the ability to vary the cutting diameter from 9 to 13mm would eliminate the need to remove and re-insert increasingly larger fixed diameter cutting heads.  This will drastically reduce tissue injury and introduction of infection. In the fall of 2015, Erickson will be constructing and testing his design.
