Industrial Case Study: Biomaterials Selection for a Joint Replacement

How do we make the right materials choices for bioengineering applications? We can draw on our biomaterials data to address this question using the CES platform, both for teaching bioengineering students and for making materials selection choices in the biomedical field. In this advanced industrial case study, we'll explore how CES EduPack can be used to identify and assess the optimum materials for a total hip replacement - with a specific look at the roles of the main material classes in the implant. Metal alloys for structural integrity, ceramics for minimizing wear in the articulating surfaces or polymers as a lightweight alternative. All under the constraints of biocompatibility. To add realism, we explore the ASM Medical Materials Database(TM) which contains over 60,000 approved medical devices.
