TECNALIA investigates advanced biomaterials to make more reliable and hardwearing medical implants
Date:11/12/2008

The TECNALIA Technological Corporation is taking part in the Cnit Intelimplant project, the goal of which is to develop advanced biomaterials based on innovative technologies (microtechnologies, nanotechnologies, tissue and surface engineering) for the manufacture of a new generation of implants which have greater durability and reliability, need less recuperation time and that provide data on their state and progress.

The Cnit Intelimplant project (Development of Advanced Biomaterials for a New Generation of Implants), led by the Biotechnology Institute (BTI), was one of the 16 projects approved by the Centre for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI) for the third CNIT programme announcement or call, within the Spanish Government INGENIO 2010 initiative.

The end goal of the project is the development of novel biomaterials which enable an extension of the functions of the implant throughout the whole life of the patient, in such a way that repeat surgical operations are avoided; the reliability and the integration of the implants are enhanced and tissue rejection avoided; the recuperation times for patients are significantly cut and the implants are operational in a minimum time; the state and progress of the implant monitored, both in the short term and in the long term after the surgical operation; the new materials will indicate any anomaly and enable the application of preventative therapies; and finally, they will simplify surgical practice, progressing to minimally invasive surgery and the automation of stages during an operation.

The project will be undertaken by a consortium made up of 15 companies, including state-of-the-art Spanish enterprises in the field of implants, BTI Biotechnology Institute, SURGIVAL, LAFITT, SOCINSER and IHT, as well as the most important ones in the value chain of their manufacture: KERAMAT, Laboratories INIBSA, BIOKER Research, METAL-ESTALKI, BIOVAC, DMP, i2m-DESIGN, ANLISIS & SIMULACIN (AyS),
