Aquala technology for Artificial Joints

  • facebooktwitterlinkedin
For anyone worrying about joint replacement surgery, Kyocera has developed an innovative surface treatment technology with bio-inspired polymer, Aquala.
Joint replacement surgery is a way to reconstruct lost function and improve quality of life. However, the prospect of revision surgery to replace prosthetic worn out joints can cause hesitation, especially for older patients.

The typical prosthetic joint will fail and require revision surgery after 10 to 20 years. However, Aquala is a polymeric surface treatment technology that has strong biocompatibility intended to promote low wear and extend the life of artificial hip joints.

Aquala is technology to help keep you moving while worrying less about revision surgery.
