The implication of fibre reinforced composite materials for biomedical purposes has been
conceptualized. In modern age, the advancement in the area of polymer composite
materials has led to scientific and technological progresses in current orthopedic
medicine and prosthetic devices. Thus Fibre Reinforced Composites (FRC)
characteristically possesses a superior strength to weight features compared to monolithic
materials and shows exceptional biocompatibility. Consequently they became universally
promising material for hard- and soft-tissue applications as well as in the design of
prostheses. Future orthopedic medicine expects the development of modernized materials
for tissue engineering and metallic implants.
