Piezoelectric tissue scaffold helps heal soft tissue injuries

January 18, 2022

Researchers at the University of Connecticut (UConn), US, have developed an electricity-producing implantable material that is claimed to boost the regrowth of damaged joint cartilage. The biocompatible tissue scaffold is made from nanofibers of a poly-L lactic acid (PLLA) polymer interwoven with a piezoelectric material that produces a small electrical current when mechanically stressed. The […]
