Implants and their components

Dear Sir or Madam,

By the time the finished implants for hips, knees or dentures arrive at the operating theatre or practice, they have already come a long way. Various manufacturers have supplied, fabricated and installed parts. In the current special we want to take a closer look at these individual components. Enjoy reading!

Get through rain and heat well!

Artificial knee joint, pacemaker or stent: they are all grouped under the generic term implants. What they all have in common is that they are intended to remain in the human body for a long time in order to support it or replace body parts. Many steps are necessary to produce an implant. We present a part of it.

On the way to the optical cochlear implant

Electrical Engineering & Nanotechnology

The cochlear implant enables worldwide over 700,000 people with reduced hearing and deaf people to hear again. So far, the auditory nerve has been stimulated by electrical impulses. The quality of this artificial hearing differs greatly from natural hearing. Due to the extensive current propagation in the cochlea, large groups of nerve cells are activated instead of just a few nerve cells.
