I Traumatology Bioengineering 4.0 Competition

First Competition for the Implementation of Bioengineering 4.0 technologies in the resolution of complex surgeries.


Stimulate collaboration between Biomedical Engineering and Traumatology for scientific advancement within the PQx_PlanificacionQuirurgica.com community.

The objective of this award is to promote the use of new technologies in the resolution of complex trauma surgeries. To promote the application of surgical planning and navigation systems that use customized anatomical biomodels, navigable cutting guides and customized implants, with navigation systems that minimize the use of conventional radiology, reduce surgical times and increase healthcare productivity by improving the ergonomics of operating room staff.

The aim is for the surgeon to perform complex surgeries offering the patient SURGICAL EXCELLENCE with improved surgeon satisfaction and ergonomics.

Also, the aim is to stimulate the training of traumatology residents and scientific dissemination with the development of publications and quality scientific dissemination.


The 1st edition of the BIO ENGINEERING 4.0 COMPETITION consists of a main prize of four thousand euros (4,000€) and an extra bonus of one thousand euros (1,000€), if published in a journal included in JCR (Journal Citation Reports).


The award ceremony of the I COMPETITION OF TRAUMATOLOGICAL BIO ENGINEERING 4.0 will take place during the celebration of the 58th SECOT Congress, which will be held in Seville (Spain) on September 29th and 30th and October 1st, 2021.

In this event PQx will be present with a stand where we will show first hand the products and services of Surgical Planning and Navigation of the company.


The deadline for receipt of entries is December 5, 2021 at 11:00 pm.

PQx PlanificacionQuirurgica.com reserves the right to extend the deadline for submission, giving in such case, publicity to the adopted agreement.

Projects must be submitted on the PQx platform created for the competition located at PlanificacionQuirurgica.com.
