Almost like Human Bone
Bioresorbable Composites Facilitate Healing after Injury
One awkward movement during football training and a cruciate ligament can be torn. The traditional treatment for such injuries, involving the use of metal implants, has a number of disadvantages, especially for the patient. To support an improved process for patient healing, Evonik has developed three bioresorbable polymer composites with ceramic additives that simulate the human bone.
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
