ORLAU is a specialist department of the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry, Shropshire. There are four qualified clinical engineers in the team with a range of backgrounds including biomechanics, physiological measurement, engineering design and quality management. All engineers work in multidisciplinary teams with surgeons, physiotherapists, orthotists, prosthetists and other health professionals. The department has design, manufacturing and testing facilities and two gait assessment areas including a large 3D gait laboratory. These support the provision of medical devices to patients, both proprietary and bespoke. ORLAU has excellent links with industry and universities for research, development and innovation. Partnerships with other NHS Trusts in Liverpool, North Wales and Leeds give access to a wide range of clinical engineering and physics services. Oswestry is a lovely rural area, with affordable housing and good transport links to major centres including Chester, Liverpool, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as Snowdonia National Park and the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
