Electrical Discharge Machining for enhanced osseointegration and antibacterial capabilities of β-phase Titanium Implant

Project description

Bone implants with enhanced features

Orthopaedic implants are used to replace a missing bone or joint or to support damaged bone. Ideally, these implants must exhibit life-long performance, which translates to implants with functional osseointegration and antibacterial features. For this purpose, the EU-funded EDiMplant project proposes to develop a technique for the surface modification of orthopaedic implants. Researchers wish to fabricate layer surfaces that combine enhanced osteogenic and antibacterial characteristics. Project deliverables will help reduce the incidence of orthopaedic implant failures and improve the quality of life of inflicted individuals who are increasing in numbers due to the ageing population.
