Orthopaedic Research Society Holds Video Outreach Competition To Explain Why Everyone Should Care About Orthopaedic Research

ROSEMONT, Ill., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- What do you get when you ask orthopaedic scientists to create a three-minute video explaining their work in simple terms?  The Orthopaedic Research Society (ORS) found out when they asked their members to do just that.  The ORS 2013 Video Outreach Competition was created to share the importance of orthopaedic research and make the work of these scientists more accessible to the general public.  The video entries not only made the field of orthopaedics understandable they made it entertaining as well.

Orthopaedics is the medical specialty that focuses on the musculoskeletal system, or any part of the human body that allows you to be active including your bones, ligaments, joints and muscles.  Orthopaedic investigators are clinicians, biologists and engineers who seek to improve patient care by studying everything from reducing low back pain to improving joint replacements; from osteoarthritis to ACL injuries.

Taking first place in the competition was Youssef Farhat who created Who Cares About Orthopaedic Research?  Farhat 's emotionally charged film uses simple images and narration to illustrate how everyone's life will be touched by orthopaedic research.  Farhat's own research is aimed at reducing or eliminating scar tissue in the hands, which can be extremely debilitating.

Oran Kennedy, whose video The Cells in Our Bones won second place, takes a more light-hearted approach.  His animated film follows the adventures of Dr. Hugh Morris (as in humorous bone) as he learns how bones in the skeleton work.

Alan Dang's third place video, Articular Cartilage and Regenerative Medicine, educates viewers about regenerative medicine.  In particular, the film gives viewers a glimpse into research aimed at discovering ways to protect and regenerate cartilage.  Eventually, this could help stop arthritis before it starts.

What do these three filmmakers have in common?  All of them will be heading to San Antonio, Texas, January 26 – 29, with over 2,500 other orthopaedic scientists to attend the Orthopaedic Research Society's 2013 Annual Meeting.  Scientists from across the globe will convene at a meeting considered to be the premiere place to present new orthopaedic research findings.

Founded in 1954, the Orthopaedic Research Society strives to be the world's leading forum for the dissemination of new musculoskeletal research findings.  The ORS is made up of over 2,800 clinicians (including orthopaedic surgeons and veterinarians), engineers and biologists.
