The RMS research is aimed at the functionality of the human locomotor system. It comprises the preservation of the natural structures and the replacement of individual components by implants. This includes application-oriented problems and the basics of new technologies and materials.
We perform in-house research projects or in cooperation with partners (external research).
The RMS Foundation has divided its research activities into focal points:
