BRUNEL UNIVERSITY (BRUNEL)

image013Brunel University London is a world-class university based in Uxbridge, West London, and was established in 1966. BRUNEL is one of the oldest and most prestigious educational institutions of UK in the field of technology, and has contributed unceasingly to the country's scientific, technical and economic development. It contains several departments such as biomaterials department. The research team of BRUNEL has several laboratories that could test the efficiency and the wear resistance of hip implants.

BRUNEL will be work package in WP6 and will conduct all the necessary tests to the newly manufactured implant.

BRUNEL is a prestigious university with long term experience in the biomaterials field and that’s why it was selected by the SMEs

  • The next step

    The next step in our novel approach is the application of ZrO2/Zr coating on the implant using Laser Engineered Net Shape techniques to give better wear resistance and lower the possibility of interfacial separation under repeated loading condition.

  • Taking a new route

    NewBioGen is taking a new route to establish methods that yield high precision and quality biomaterials and will validate their increased biocompatibility, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, enhanced mechanical and tribological properties.
