RESCOLL involved in the FUI Project "HOBBIT" :
The objective is to develop resorbable implants with gradients of mechanical properties and resorption. This will allow a gradual resorption without risk of mechanical properties loss between bone and implant.
These implants are made with composite material (organic /bioactive ceramic) highly osteostimulator and by using conventional plastics technologies. Ultimately, the success of this project will avoid to remove plate, screws, pins after surgery … and open the possibility to develop resorbable implants with high mechanical strength.

RESCOLL was involved in the European Project "NEWBONE" :
Development of load-bearing fibre reinforced composite based non-metallic biomimetic bone implant. The aim of NEWBONE is to develop fibre reinforced composite (FRC) material load-bearing implant: to produce at prototype level two resorbable fixation devices in knee/shoulder ligament repair and two non-resorbable bone fixation devices for reconstruction of large bone defects and study the use of developed technologies in complete implants (hip stem, knee) and spine applications.
