At the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) Implant Science Centre, we’ve collected over 10,000 spine, hip and knee implants from patients in 29 different countries. Many of these have been manufactured using traditional cast or wrought methods and we’ve developed metrology methods to assess how these have worn and corroded while in use. This has involved the use of optical and contact profilometry and coordinate measurement machines to characterise surfaces changes and damage.
