Patients about to undergo knee and shoulder operations will be able to access an interactive guide to their care thanks to new university research.

Oxford University has been given £50,000 by charity Arthritis Research UK to develop a website and tablet app for those set to have a half knee replacement or keyhole surgery on the shoulder.

This will include an interactive 3D diagram of surgery and information about recovery and rehabilitation.

All that's missing now, is a cost-saving DIY operation which patients can do themselves! Surely this is yet another load of money wasted on 'interactive information' which should already be provided by the Patient's own 'GP' or Consultant? Or, are Patients supposed to take their knee-pad or eye-player into the actual operation, and watch what's going on as some sort of 'reality' show?
