Bio Medical Composite Materials


Composites will continue to gain acceptance in the biomedical field. When compared to metals (titanium, nickle, stainless, etc) used in bio medical, composite materials have some distinct advantages. Composites are x-ray transparent allowing doctors to take less x-rays to better see injuries and how they are healing. Many patients have allergies to nickle and other alloys, which limit the bio medical components that can be used. Above is a paper going into further detail on the subject, and is worth the read.
