Here's how to take on the challenge of selecting the right materials for an implantable medical device.

Len Czuba

I don’t think that there is any challenge more confusing to product development teams than selecting materials that can be used for long-term implantable medical devices.

Are there databases where implantable materials are featured? Can we go to our local supplier and ask them to recommend a material that can be used for implant applications? Usually the answer to both questions is “No." There are not databases that offer a variety of implantable materials like produce at a supermarket, nor would they be accurate if they did exist.
