Recent research and development in titanium alloys for biomedical applications and healthcare goods

  title={Recent research and development in titanium alloys for biomedical applications and healthcare goods},
  author={Mitsuo Niinomi},
Nb, Ta and Zr are the favorable non-toxic alloying elements for titanium alloys for biomedical applications. Low rigidity titanium alloys composed of non-toxic elements are getting much attention. The advantage of low rigidity titanium alloy for the healing of bone fracture and the remodeling of bone is successfully proved by fracture model made in tibia of rabbit. Ni-free super elastic and shape memory titanium alloys for biomedical applications are energetically developed. Titanium alloys for… CONTINUE READING
