3D printing of PEEK and its composite to increase biointerfaces as a biomedical material - A review
Poly ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) is a polymer with better lignin biocompatibility than other polymers. It is good for biomedical engineering applications. This research summarises the outcomes of an evaluation conducted on ...
Mechanical performances of hip implant design and fabrication with PEEK composite
Artificial bone implant materials need porosity for nutrient distribution, moderate pore size to provide cell cultures and bone-like mechanical properties. The homogenisation of discrepancies between the microstructure of ...
Review on 3D printing: Fight against COVID-19
The outbreak of Coronavirus in 2019 (COVID-19) caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its pandemic effects have created a demand for essential medicine equipment. To date, there are no specific, clinically effective licensed ...
3D printing of PEEK–cHAp scaffold for medical bone implant
The major drawback associated with PEEK implants is their biologically inert surface, which caused unsatisfactory cellular response and poor adhesion between the implants and surrounding soft tissues against proper bone ...
3D printing and morphological characterisation of polymeric composite scaffolds
3D-printing is an efficient method of designing customised structures and producing synthetic bone grafts appropriate for bone implants. This research aimed to manufacture a new multi-functionalised 3D-printed poly(lactic ...
