PEEK polymer is regarded as one of the highest performing engineering thermoplastics in the world. However, the materials of choice in the medical device industry, and across many others have long been metals.
Titanium was a biomaterial specially as an interbody fusion device, even though now it is also used widely, then why PEEK is a better option than titanium at present? It is due to the following advantages:
PEEK as a flexible biomaterial is an excellent weight-bearing material which is suitable for orthopedic and spinal implants, PEEK is more flexible compared with Titanium. Besides, PEEK also have the ability to bend resembles the behavior of bone. This feature makes it an excellent replacement for other orthopedic implants, such as spinal interbody fusion devices & anterior cervical plates.
PEEK can pass the X-rays, MRI, CT scans, that is Tinanium can not achieve. Due to PEEK does not interfere with medical imaging, therefore, it is important for postoperative monitoring as the created image is readable.
PEEK material shows high-temperature stability compared to other metal implants which created a more comfortable situation for the patients. It is extensively reported by patients with titanium plates that they experience an intensive pain when their body’s temperatures fluctuate.
It is easily compatible with human body and it can implement the body without causing serious problems such as cytotoxicity, genotoxicity or immunogenic.
low density (1.31 g/cm3)
low elastic modulus
low moisture absorption
