MICHAEL FREEMAN AWARD

As a demonstration of our commitment to education, in collaboration with EFORT, in 2018 Medacta has supported the Michael Freeman Award. It was created in memory of Professor Michael Freeman, to honour his lifetime contribution to both the European and the International Orthopaedic Community after he passed away in September 2017. 

The award was related to knee biomechanics and the winner was the paper “Stiffness Of Monoplanar And Biplanar Lateral Open Wedge Supracondylar Femur Osteotomies. A Comparative, Biomechanical Study” by Martin Pietsch, Markus Hochegger, Martin Winkler, Peter Augat.
