Welcome

The Orthopaedic & Rehabilitation Engineering Center (OREC) is designed to promote and encourage significant advances in clinical research through coordinated endeavors between Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin. These opportunities are afforded to faculty and students at Marquette University and to faculty, fellows, and residents in the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Medical College of Wisconsin. OREC builds upon prior successful collaborations in the fields of orthopaedic biomechanics, biomaterials, rehabilitation engineering, and human motion analysis.

Greetings from Cali, Colombia, S.A.

The Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Engineering Center (OREC) recently visited our outreach lab at the Club Noel Hospital in Cali to update the camera system for gait analysis of children with orthopaedic disabilities. Our colleague, Dr. Wilfredo Agredo and his graduates from Universidad Autónoma de Occidente joined in the effort to upgrade and support the system.

Press Release: $4.75 Million RERC Grant

Released: October 27, 2010

Marquette College of Engineering receives $4.75 million grant to help children with orthopaedic disabilities

MILWAUKEE – Marquette University has been named a national Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center by the U.S. Department of Education and will receive nearly $5 million over the next five years to implement four research and four development projects aimed at addressing the needs of children with orthopaedic disabilities.

Please see additional press coverage in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and The Business Journal.

Transitional Care in Osteogenesis Imperfecta

The Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Engineering Center at Marquette (OREC) recently co-supported a workshop on Transitional Care in Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI): Advances in Biology, Technology and Clinical Practice. Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder characterized by fragile bones that break easily and is also known as “brittle bone disease.” The number of Americans affected with OI is thought to be as many as 50,000 people.

The one day symposium was an opportunity for clinicians and researchers to come together and collaborate for the common goal of providing the best possible level of patient care. The workshop was held at Shriners Hospital for Children in Chicago and was attended by many experts in the area of OI. Attendees from around the world included; physicians, therapists, biomedical engineers, mechanical and biological researchers, and scientists.

Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training in Pediatric Mobility

Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training in Pediatric Mobility is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education (H133P080005). This Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) program takes advantage of the ongoing collaborations among Marquette University, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Shriners Hospitals for Children, and the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
