Mechanical Study of Biomaterials in Injury and Rehabilitation
Current research in the field of mechanical study of biomaterials for injury and rehabilitation is focused on developing strategies to enhance tissue regeneration and improve the mechanical properties of implants. Biomimetic approaches are being used to create materials that mimic the structure and function of natural tissues. Mechanical loading is being explored to stimulate tissue growth, and advanced imaging techniques are being used to better understand the mechanical properties of tissues and biomaterials. Researchers are also investigating the use of 3D printing technology to create custom implants with tailored mechanical properties. However, various challenges remain, including developing materials that are both biocompatible and have the desired mechanical properties, as well as understanding the biological responses to different mechanical stimuli. The goal of this research is to improve patient outcomes by developing biomaterials that can better support tissue healing and improve the mechanical properties of medical devices.
This Topic is focused on the mechanical study of biomaterials in injury and rehabilitation, exploring their potential applications in treating injuries and aiding in rehabilitation. Submissions are encouraged, but not limited to, the following general areas:
- Biomaterials in bone regeneration;
- Mechanical properties of implantable materials for tendon and ligament tissues;
- Design of implantable devices;
- New models of the damage mechanics of composite structures and human tissue.
This Topic will bring together recent research in an effort to identify new opportunities and further develop this field.
