Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
The application of electric-field in materials processing will revolutionise future manufacturing. In comparison with conventional thermo-mechanical processing, it is rapid, consumes less energy, has a lower environmental impact and requires less capital investment.
