A research team from the University of Kufa obtain a patent on the artificial hip joint

Dr. Safaa Hashim Al-Musawi from the Department of Material Engineering at the University of Kufa together with Dr. Jawad Kazem Alewi and Dr. Rana Afif from the University of Technology obtained a patent from the Central Organization for Standardization and Quality Control for their innovative research work of Manufacturing polymer composite materials with Nanoscale additives for an artificial hip Joint and studying friction corrosion with a special system.
The research included strengthening the polymer by using the implantation and replacement of the polyethylene hip Joint with very high molecular weight by adding 1,2,3,5 percent of Nano-materials such as Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) and hydroxyapatite (nHA) Nanostructures. The eight Nano-composites prepared by infrared spectroscopy were diagnosed to demonstrate the polarization between the polymer Casas and the strengthening of the Nano-materials. The results showed fusion and synergies between the polymer chains and the additives
