Story

Sadly, the odds are that we or someone close to us will suffer from a musculoskeletal disorder, be involved in a major limb trauma, or have joint replacement surgery at some point in our lives.

There are over 20 million people of all ages in the UK living with a musculoskeletal condition and over 20,000 people are impacted by major trauma every year; that’s about one third of the population.

As a charity, we strive to transform the lives of those impacted by musculoskeletal conditions and injuries by funding research and innovation across Trauma and Orthopaedics. Our Joint Action appeal provides dedicated funds to achieve this through activities like Clinical Trials and Research Fellowships.

Funding the Clinical Trials Units is vital for driving innovation and developing cutting-edge treatments by identifying and testing new orthopaedic procedures, innovative surgical techniques, implants and devices.

Over the past two years, we have worked closely with Exeter and Nottingham Clinical Trials Units and the following are just a few of the topics being worked on;

- Increased mobility, in hospital and outdoors, after hip fracture,

- Early phase trials on intelligent walking frames and sensors to remotely monitor recovery after knee replacements,

- Understanding how exercise changes outcomes in patients with low back pain,

- Studying whether resistance exercises improve pain and function in adults with a broken wrist

- Impact of early weight-bearing following various forms of foot and ankle surgery

But, there is still so much to do and we can't do it without your support. Would you consider donating this Winter to help fund life-changing trauma and orthopaedic research into 2023 and beyond?
