Life Cycle Assessment and Simulation Model for Resorbable bioceramic composite materials

LEITAT published a poster summing up its activities it made within the project. This mainly involves the Life Cycle Assessment of the three devices and a simulation model describing the biomechanical analysis of the mandible .


The RESTORATION project aimed to develop resorbable bioceramic composite materials for three main applications:

  • Osteoarthritis: The project develops functionally gradient bioceramic composite plugs for osteochondral applications
  • Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty: a new generation of vertebral cements with appropriate biological, mechanical and rheological properties are being developed
  • Maxillofacial Fracture Fixation: the project develops new bioceramic composites, which will possess sufficient stiffness and strength to protect and support the broken bone
