AcronymNSE PRO

Proposal titleNOVEL SURFACE ENGINEERED COUNTERFACE SYSTEMS FOR PROSTHESES

APPLICATIONS

AbstractConventional prostheses materials which are acceptable to the body includeaustenitic

stainless steels and titaniumalloys which usually articulate withultra high molecular weight

polyethylene counterfaces. However, these materialssuffer from poor tribological

properties and wear debris produced have anadverse clinical effect on prostheses patients.

This leads to unacceptably poorlong term outcomes for young patients. The availability of

plasma immersionion implantation in Europe, which is a surface engineering technology

whichcan generate wear resistant surface layers in both metallic and polymeric

materials,provides a special opportunity to manufacture "long life" surfaceengineered

medical prostheses, thus opening up new opportunities for youngerpatients.

Key ActionGROW-5.   RTD activities of a generic nature : Materials and their technologies for

production and transformation and new and improved materials and production technologies
