Titanium Foam As A Bone Implant
A new material could better integrate with the skeleton when repairing injured bones.
German researchers have developed a new bone implant made from a polyurethane foam mixed with titanium powder that could be more effective than the conventional solid metal implant. The team from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials Research has created this foam-based titanium implant that is more flexible and porous, allowing for more effective bone regrowth and helping the implanted bone to better integrate with the skeleton.
