In the current project we deal with surface modification of implants for large joints, which are prepared by traditional and additive technologies. Czech private company Prospon s.r.o., material scientists from the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, and we from private company Contipro a.s. as specialists in surface treatment of 3D surfaces with the help of an electrostatic field are involved in the project.

In my presentation I would like to draw attention to the importance of surface treatment of 3D implants intended for pharmacy. A surface layer of a metal implant affects its acceptance by the human body. The surface treatment enhances metal implant properties e.g. its biocompatibility, enhance a cell adhesion and proliferation, reduce inflammatory responses, and facilitate integration between the implant and surrounding tissues.
