WFTV Highlights Hip Dysplasia Diagnosis Advancement Leave a comment

Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and IHDI are highlighted by WFTV News in their efforts to keep babies born with Hip Dysplasia from developing serious issues that lead to surgery over the course of their lifetime. The medical dilemma of diagnosis in infants can soon become easier as identifying DDH within an infant is incredibly difficult due to their inability to speak and follow direction for signs of physical indications. The students at Embry Riddle are utilizing 3D printing as a means to accurately create a model that mimics the hips of an infant and that can help physicians identify the 1 in 6 babies effected by Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip.

Watch ERAU’s Dr. Victor Huayamave, ERAU PhD Student Tamara Chambers, and our Director Dr. Charles T. Price, discuss the project and it’s impact with WFTV anchors HERE.
