  • Biomaterials can be natural, synthetic, solid and liquid, which are used in medical devices or within biological systems. E.g. metals, ceramics, polymers, glasses, carbons. Biomaterials can be roughly divided into 3 groups: Inert materials or minimal tissue response, such as metals Active materials encourage bonding to surrounding tissue with such as new bone growth stimulation Degradable materials are incorporated into the surrounding tissue, or completely dissolve over a period of time.
