MEDICAL APPLICATIONS FOR COMPOSITE MATERIALS
Fibre-reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) are finding more applications in the medical sector because of their light-weight, high-stiffness characteristics and bio-compatibility. External components such as artificial limbs use the high specific properties, fatigue resistance and flexibility of manufacture of composites to advantage. The chemical inertness of carbon fibre has led to a number of surgical applications where the material is used in conjunction or instead of metallic or polymeric materials.
SMC ITALIA gained extensive experience from design to manufacture of medical equipments for body scanner, physiotherapy, aesthetic treatment, medical diagnostics.
We work in open collaboration and full synergy with our customers to achieve the final objective of their projects: higher end-user satisfaction.
