Researchers at Biomechanics Laboratory at Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli used IJD stoichiomerty conservation capabilities in a very original way using properly treated animal bones as a starting material to produce bone apatite-like (BAL) coatings on orthopedic and dentistry implants.

The use of natural apatite allow to have a ideal composition including small amounts of elements that may be relevant in promoting osseointegration and would be very difficult to be
included in a laboratory synthesized target.
