Partners from the MIRACLE project have recently published a paper in the journal CARTILAGE. The study presents results from a validation study, showing that mid-infrared fiber-optic spectroscopy can detect mechanically and enzymatically induced damage in bovine cartilage with great accuracy.
The University of Ulm is collaborating with art photonics, nanoplus and OptoPrecision within the MIRACLE project to develop and optimise the first operational prototype of the mid-infrared (MIR) arthroscopy device.
Medical devices in the European Union (EU) have to undergo a conformity assessment to demonstrate that the general safety and performance requirements under the new Medical Devices Regulation (2017/745/EU) (MDR) are met.
The University of Eastern Finland (UEF) in conjunction with Kuopio University Hospital (KUH) received ethical permission for the real-time clinical examination of Mid-Infrared (MIR) arthroscopy device developing by MIRACLE project.
