Challenges of mechanical surface characterization of biomedical materials

Challenges of mechanical surface characterization of biomedical materials

In the field of mechanical engineering, efforts to replicate nature encounter numerous material obstacles. Despite significant advancements by bioengineers, ensuring the longevity of new implants and tissue replacement remains paramount. It is therefore extremely important to thoroughly characterize the surface mechanical properties of biological materials and newly developed biomaterials.

In our upcoming webinar, we will demonstrate the mechanical characterization of surfaces across a large spectrum of biomedical materials and implants. Jiri Nohava, PhD., will explain how surface mechanical testing can contribute to tissue engineering and will offer insights into bone anisotropy and joint implant tribology. The webinar will comprehensively showcase the practical applications of measurement of surface mechanical properties across biological and biomaterial scales, ranging from the softest to the hardest materials. 

Webinar highlights:

- Mechanical properties of rat femur and human knee cartilage
- The human cornea and its properties
- Anisotropy of bone tissue
- The effect of chemical and biological damage on tooth enamel
- Friction of hip and knee implants

This webinar is especially useful for:
- Biomechanical engineers
- University hospitals
- Bioengineering departments
