Researchers at IIT-B have developed models for better hip and knee replacements

Analytical models created by scientists at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) can predict the topography of surfaces with electrical discharge texture (EDT). A grant from India’s Department of Science & Technology’s Advanced Manufacturing Technologies program helped fund the project’s creation in India.

Key Highlight:

  • Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-B) have created analytical models that can forecast surface topography of electrical discharge textured (EDT) surfaces for better hip and knee implants.
  • The Department of Science and Technology’s Advanced Manufacturing Technologies initiative helped fund the project.
  • The developed technology is at level 6.
  • According to the TRL, the developed technology has the potential to be used in orthopaedic implants.

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-B) have created analytical models that can forecast surface topography of electrical discharge textured (EDT) surfaces for better hip and knee implants.

Professor Suhas S Joshi of IIT-B has developed analytical and numerical models to predict surface topography that has been validated against experimental data. Dr. S. Joshi. The Department of Science and Technology’s Advanced Manufacturing Technologies initiative helped fund the project.

In order to stimulate tissue growth and adherence, electrical discharge-textured surfaces have the right combination of surface topography and surface chemistry. Predicting surface topography is critical with EDT surfaces because the process creates surfaces that are essentially random and therefore impossible to anticipate.

Topography must be known at the design stage through appropriate methods of topography prediction in order to optimize EDT surface topographies for various applications such as orthopaedic implants and tool insert rake faces. According to the TRL, the developed technology is at level 6.
