For networks based on fibres of ferromagnetic materials, such as ferritic stainless steels, it has been proposed that applications could be developed involving magnetic actuation, an example being the stimulation of bone growth via the application of a magnetic field. The talk will focus on the modelling and experimental work done up to date to establish whether magneto-mechanical Actuation of Ferromagnetic Fibre Networks shows promise as a new therapeutic approach to address the problem of orthopaedic implant loosening.
