Part 3: Fine Ceramics Inside the Body
Human bodies contain numerous bones and joints.
Did you know that when bones and joints have been damaged through diseases such as osteoarthritis or rheumatism, Fine Ceramics (also known as “advanced ceramics”) can be used to replace bones and skull, and to improve the functioning of joints such as shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and ankles?
Artificial bones and joints made from Fine Ceramics are tough, durable and compatible with the human body, and are widely used in the medical field in combination with similarly durable and compatible materials such as titanium alloys.
