Animal study of artificial cartilage and its developement for clinical application

 Based on the research on joint morphology, joint kinetics and simulation of articular movement, optimum design of artificial joint with hydrogel artificial cartialge for clinical appliation is explored.  In addition, evaluation of wear properties of hydrogel artificial cartilagein in joint simulator test and of biocompatibility and fixation in animal study are planned.
