Intelligent implants to monitor and control bone healing

A working group of physicians, materials researchers, engineers and computer scientists at Saarland University (Germany) is developing a innovative implant that is designed to monitor the healing process of bone fractures and to warn of incorrect loading.
An implant specially tailored to the individual patient should provide information after surgery on how the fracture heals and also have a targeted and active positive influence on bone healing by moving or stiffening itself as required.

“The goal is to make the individual fracture calculable and to enable the optimal therapy for each patient,” Slusallek formulates the vision of the project.
