Antimicrobial Integrated Methodologies for orthopaedic applications

Project description

Reducing infection in orthopaedics

In orthopaedic implants, such as joint prostheses, postoperative infections by antibiotic-resistant bacteria are on the rise, representing a heavy burden for patients and healthcare systems. This is why the prevention of biofilm formation on the surface of the implants is important. The EU-funded AIMed project will develop a series of biomaterials with anti-bacterial properties. Laser processing will be used to make the biomaterials more resistant to the formation of biofilms. The project, which consists of a network of 12 beneficiaries and six partner institutions, will test the properties of the new materials to demonstrate that they are suitable for use in future implant interventions.
