Innovnano and Portuguese University Partner on 3D Implant Project

Innovnano, manufacturer of structural zirconia ceramics, has entered into an R&D project with Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (NOVA University in Lisbon, Portugal) to produce additively manufactured zirconia-based ceramic orthopaedic implants.

The project combines Innovnano’s nanostructured zirconia powders with NOVA’s 3D printing technology. The goal is to produce synthetic bone material that is biocompatible, stable and bearing mechanical properties close to those of different types of actual bone tissue.
 
Researchers will work to optimize the particle shape of the zirconia-based composite materials to produce the best compromise between porosity and mechanical resistance, and also on in vitro and in vivo studies to determine biocompatibility.
