  • biomaterials and artificial knee meniscus

    well, after lurking here for some time i decided to come out in
    search of some information. i am a Senior in Engineering Mechanics at
    the University of Cincinnati, and currently working in a design group for
    our Senior project. the project focuses on selecting biomaterials
    suitable for use in an artificial knee meniscus implant. our goal is to
    design some in vitro experiments that would approximate in vivo
    conditions (using saline @ 37 deg C) and test the mechanical properties
    (strength, fatigue life, wear) of several materials. i was wondering if
    anyone on the list had any information that would be helpful in our
    project. we have found some difficulty in locating data on meniscal
    implants, probably due to the infancy of the concept. any help would be
    greatly appreciated.

    thanks in advance,
