Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Tribology

Scope
The goal of research in the Tribology, Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory is to develop more durable bearing surfaces to extend their useful lifespan in patients and develop new materials and surface treatments for orthopaedic implants. The laboratory is also fully equipped to test and evaluate new third parties implants and materials.

Research
Studies based in the Tribology Laboratory include:

  • Evaluation of existing or prototype materials/devices for orthopaedic implants.

  • Development of new, improved materials & devices.

  • Evaluation of novel and explanted implants.
