The Application of Metal Materials in Exercise-Induced Bone Injury


Article Preview

The bone injury induced by sports exercise and daily activities is more common, the metal materials were generally utilized in fixation and reconstruction of impaired bone, while the biomechanical properties of metal plate play a great effect on the stability of bone and blood supply of bone, which may produce important influence to rehabilitation efficacy. The biomedical metal materials obtain the widespread application in the clinical treatment of bone injuries after a long-term research and clinical screening. the effect of Material properties on Implant mechanics, Bone locking plate with ordinary steel mechanical properties, Material implantation on mechanical effect were analyzed in this study. The Clinical biomechanics properties and therapeutic effects of metallic material were influenced by their properties, forging process and clinical methods of implantation.
