Operating at Nanoscale Where the ”Rules” are Different
At Implant Surfaces,
we have consistently pursued the development of novel solutions for difficult problems in the medical device industry. The most challenging problems arise from the interaction between the device surface material and the body. To meet these challenges, we integrate the physics, microbiology, protein chemistry, and immunochemistry of the device surface at the nanoscale to correct mismatches and bridge any biocompatibility gaps it may have with the body. This revolutionary multidisciplinary materials engineering approach at a quantum level has enabled us to create implant surfaces that at various times have been considered impossible.
We proudly present some of our Impossible Surfaces.
