||New Materials for Medical Implants: Diamond
|On-Site Speaker (Planned)
As medical implants become more and more sophisticated, new materials are being investigated to improve the bond between the implant and the bone/tissue. We have recently developed three methods in combine diamond with additive manufacturing.
1. A polycrystalline diamond coating technology
2. A nanodiamond coating technology
3. A hybrid co-printed diamond technology
The evidence from our studies suggest that the surface provides a good biomedical scaffold. Here we discuss our research findings that show that diamond implants promote cellular vitality, decrease bacteria attachment and be suitable for potential in situ imaging.
