|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.
