Self Healing Orthopaedic Metallic Implant

In India, orthopaedic surgeons face a huge disease burden of injury, infective, neo-plastic, degenerative, and metabolic conditions. Additionally, growing incidence of diabetes, obesity, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are further expanding the clinical need. The orthopaedic implants market can be broadly divided on the basis of the area of treatment, into 4 major segments: Trauma, Spine, Knee and Hip. The market is shared approximately in an equal ratio between the Trauma & Spine segments on one hand and joints (Knee & Hip) on the other.The present work aims at fabrication and testing of Ti6Al4V alloy (most commonly used biomaterial) based bio-implants for improved bio-functionality. This will be achieved through 3D printed Ti6Al4V alloy material for attaining desired microstructural and mechanical properties, and further applying composite surface coatings of a bioactive material. The resulting specimens are intended to have improved anti-wear properties and bioactivity in terms of osseogeneration capability and antimicrobial properties combined with mechanical properties emulating human bone.
