Medical implants and prostheses are highly sophisticated and challenging systems. Dimensional variation and individual shapes combined with resistant and for bio-compatible materials demanding highest precision and an adjusted surface integrity cause delicate production requirements.
Sensitive adapted processes and machinery as well as matching quality control are key issues for a successful fabrication.
Nowadays, integration of "intelligence" into implants and prostheses by the application of functional materials and surfaces and even sensors and mechatronics provides an interesting field of innovation. With these topics this symposium adresses researchers and developers as well as manufacturers and suppliers in oder to establish a platform of knowledge and interdisciplinary exchange.
