Bone Implants

Bone Implants

Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films researchers have developed a novel bone implants. The implant is designed to fit precisely, and have variable dimensions and improved stability. A special type of polymer is a key ingredient for creating the bone implants. The uses of a plasma jet for applying a layer of cell-growth promoters to the bone implants. Individual layers coated with a cold plasma are further treated
