Oscillatory Tribology Applications in Biolubrication

Relevant for: Biotribology, Medical Engineering, Mucin, Hydration Lubrication

Understanding biotribological scenarios such as lubricated cartilage interfaces, ophthalmic applications, or the interaction of implants with endogenous tissues, etc., is relevant for prevention or treatment of diseases and for development of medically engineered products. Complex biomaterial surfaces show multiple interactions at their respective interfaces. This is why tribological tests with biological materials or with biologically inspired materials require measurements with very high sensitivity and flexibility in terms of normal force and speed control.
