Introduction to biomaterials and implantable device design

Abstract:

Replacement and regeneration of lost function or tissue with well-matched biomaterials remains an area of active research and development, driving demand for novel and improved biomaterials. The ever-increasing complexity and high degree of integration of additives in modern biomaterials have significantly expanded the scope of biomaterial applications, but this has also introduced novel challenges. In this chapter, implantable electronic devices are used to demonstrate key issues and challenges associated with the design of complex implantable systems.
