New trends in surface technology for medical implants

New trends in surface technology for medical implants
An implant is a medical device manufactured to replace a missing biological structure, support a damaged biological structure, or enhance an existing biological structure.
Some implants contain electronics (e.g. artificial pacemaker or cochlear implants) while others are bioactive, such as subcutaneous drug delivery devices in the form of implantable pills or drug-eluting stents.

This seminar focuses on interactions of implants with biological systems, coating technologies, durability, test possibilities, as well as the new MDR requirements for medical devices. You will learn about both recent advances from research institutions as well as from private companies.

Target audience: The seminar is aimed at employees in the medical and materials science industry who could benefit from learning more about materials and surfaces in medical implants.
