Niche Area : Implant manufacturing, magnesium alloys, metal casting

Researches conducted on biodegradable implants are mainly aimed at decreasing the Mg degradation and corrosion rate by alloying Mg with Ca and Zn, surface treatment by hydrofluoric acid and coating with nano-sized HA and DCPD using electrodeposition method beside investigating the effect of processing technique on the degradation rate of magnesium alloys. These researches are meant to avoiding second surgical procedure for implant removal, thus reducing cost and risk to the patient. Works have also been conducted on developing rapid manufacturing approach to produce customise implant.
