Innovative Hip Implants Aim to Enhance Bone Growth and Stability

Last Friday, 14 June 2024, a press release about our CRC 1270 ELAINE written by Joachim Mangler was published. The press release provides insight into the research work of PD Dr Daniel Klüß and Franziska Geiger.

With the development of intelligent hip implants, they want to reduce the number of revisions, in other words, the need to replace entire implants or individual components. In addition to simply replacing the hip joint, the intelligent implants should also measure the strength of the implant in the bone. But as if that wasn't enough, they are also supposed to stimulate bone growth via a piezo element. This way, the bone around the implant should grow back and provide a firm hold.

We thank PD Dr Daniel Klüß and Franziska Geiger for this fascinating insight. We are delighted that you are part of our CRC 1270 ELAINE!

Please check out the press release (in German) and share your thoughts (elaineuni-rostockde).
