Method and Material to Extend the Life of Total Joint Replacements through Wear
More than 500,000 joint replacements occur in the US each year and demand for joint replacements will grow an estimated 175 percent for total hip replacements and six-fold for total knee replacements by 2030 (CDC report “Health United States 2009”). These replacements typically last about 10 years or more, but as the patients live longer...
