Smart Implants

Next generation medical devices for personalized medicine:

Endosseous implants support bone healing and permit early musculoskeletal loading shortly after trauma surgery. Monitoring of osseous healing by X-ray imaging is limited due to high energy absorption within the patient’s body and exhibits reduced resolution at metallic surfaces.

To overcome this technological limitation we have developed an implantable biosensor capable of monitoring implant integration, stability and patient-dependent bone healing kinetics and has four discernable features.
