Artificial Joint Material Using Carbon Nanotubes

Interesting video showing the latest development in artificial joint material using carbon nanotubes. Using nanobiotechnology and carbon nanotubes, researchers have developed a material for use in the acetabular cup that wears less than more conventional materials such as polyethylene and ceramics. They hope to extend the life of these artificial joints beyond the 15-20 years that is currently the norm.
