The Orthopedic Innovation Center
Forté Orthopedic Research Insitute has prioritized innovation since its inception. In early 2019, the vision for the orthopedic research institute began to take shape. This state-of-the-art, first-of-its-kind establishment will improve the long-term health and well-being of Hoosiers from across the state in addition to people from across the world. Working alongside sports medicine and orthopedic device industry partners, the Forté Orthopedic Research Institute will house a modern 15 station bioskills laboratory, medical trainings, a STEAM makerspace innovation lab, and the latest in collaborative communication technologies.
Orthopedic and sports injuries severely impact our overall health and wellness. They are associated with mobility limitations, dependency on others, shorter lifespan, and lasting chronic pain. Additionally, these physical limitations often negatively impact mental health and quality of life. The orthopedic research institute will allow our Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics team to research, educate, and implement new practices that will leave a lasting legacy on communities around the globe.
