Biomaterials and Medical Devices
Biomaterials can be defined in terms of healthcare as materials having unique qualities that allow them to interact with living tissue immediately without inducing immunological rejection. Biomaterials are made up of numerous components that interact with biological systems. They can be natural or synthetic, alive or dead. Biomaterials have been used by humans since the dawn of time, but evolution has made them more adaptable and useful. Biomaterials have revolutionized fields like bioengineering and tissue engineering, allowing for the development of new techniques to tackle life-threatening diseases. Different ailments, such as heart failure, fractures, and severe skin lesions, are treated using similar principles and approaches. Work is being done to improve existing procedures and come up with new ones. Biomaterials and medical devices interact with biological systems in an indirect way. Biomaterials can be used to replace or restore lost tissue in medical applications.
