Additive manufacturing meets mechanobiology – design and fabrication of osteogenic-stimulating implants (ADD2MECHBIO)

PartnerFundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia
Over the years, the number of patients undergoing total hip and knee arthroplasties has been increasing. Due to the lengthened life expectancy and aging population this trend is expected to continue and the number of patients that will outlive their first prosthesis will also rise (patients that will need revision surgeries). These implants impa...
