Lattice Structures in Orthopedic Implants

Introduction: What is porosity? Porosity refers to the percentage of an object that is not solid. An example would be bread, a sponge, or your bones. Porosity allows for the optimization of strength vs weight. One technique to achieve porosity in orthopedic Implants is through the use of lattice structures. Lattices are regular, 3d-dimensional, repeating structures.…
