NEW TREATMENTS FOR SURGICAL IMPLANTS


The objectives of this project are to set-up two innovative vacuum thin film treatments to be deposited on the surface of surgical implants. We will study two categories of implants:

  • the first category is represented by electronic prosthesis for Intracoclear implants; in this case the treatments must replace the ceramic case now used, too thick, and must have a very high level of barrier against water (body's fluids) and to be dielectric (to guarantee the wireless communication with external parts) and to be biocompatible;
  • the second category is represented by Dental and Orthopaedic Titanium prosthesis; the purposes of this coating are: to protect the prosthesis itself by the erosion of body's fluids, to guarantee a faster Osseo integration (not less than 50% reduction of ossification time), to be biocompatible and to avoid rejection by softening of the interface between bone and implant (more than 20 years of lifetime).

The expected results will contribute to the social objectives of European community by improving the quality of life and sustaining employment increasing the EU competitiveness respect USA, Japan and far East.
