People can have bone problems that require a titanium-based replacement joint that is surgically implanted into the body to replace the old one. But what if this new joint could also help kickstart the body’s healing mechanisms?

Although titanium alloys do a good job in hip replacements, very active patients or ageing patients often require revision surgery to fix a hip replacement that hasn’t interacted well with the bone, preventing it from healing.

Trina, a postgrad student at Monash University in Melbourne, is learning how to design 3D-printed implants that fuse with bone more effectively.

“I’m looking at how to make the implant communicate better with the bone, so the bone grows around the implant and locks in place more effectively,” explains Trina.

“We can make customised implants using 3D printing that are designed around the patient’s own body specifications.”

Trina’s interest in biomedical research was ignited during her final year research project studying biomedical science and engineering at Monash.

“I love the process of exploring a subject and thinking deeply about it,” she says.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”6363″ img_size=”medium” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_circle”][vc_column_text]
