Dr Todd Stewart


  • Research and Teaching in Medical Engineering

Research interests

Dr. Stewart’s research interests lie primarily in Orthpaedics in the areas of Joint Replacement and Trauma.

  • Joint Replacement

Dr Stewart conducts research into the functional aspects of joint replacement ( Hip, Knee) (mechanics, fixation, materials, friction, lubrication and wear).   

  • Trauma

Dr Stewart conducts research into the mechanics and remote monitoring of load support in trauma devices and their effects on bone healing and local joint mechanics (shear).
