Applications of permanent magnets
Application of magnetic rods for fixation in orthopedic treatments.
Achieving an efficient fixation for complicated fractures and scaffold application treatments is a challenging surgery problem.
An innovative fixation method based on application of magnetic forces. The efficiency of this approach was investigated on the basis of finite element modeling for scaffold application and analytical calculations for diaphyseal fractures.
The employment of magnetic rods is expected to be beneficial by reducing considerably the interface micromotions.It can additionally support magneto-mechanical stimulations as well as enabling a magnetically assisted targeted delivery of drugs and other bio-agents.
