From biomechanical foot and limb issues to physical rehabilitation and enhancing mobility for amputee patients
are two medical fields that greatly benefit from advanced prosthesis designs.
Our EP® series of engineered plastics materials and advanced polymer coatings offer excellent stability and a range of motion without the need of additional lubricants.
Hydraulics / Pneumatics
GGB tribological coating solutions extend the life cycle of the prosthetics and reduce maintenance intervals and offer excellent wear life and tight tolerances.
Reduce service and maintenance costs
Service and maintenance costs for an average prosthesis are 15-20% higher than the actual cost to produce it, which is an issue for both manufacturers and end users.
Longevity and durability
Less maintenance in the long-run means that both engineers and patients get a higher-quality product that delivers durability and performance.
Engineers need to design with tight tolerance in mind so that manufacturers can cost effectively produce their prostheses. GGB’s surface solutions aren’t just cost effective to the engineer, they’re also reliable for everybody else in the purchasing chain—from suppliers and medical facilities to the end user.
Prosthetics pose unique challenges
Engineers and prosthetic specialists are facing increasing demands to deliver high performance prosthetics. GGB can provide customers with surface solutions for any prosthesis or prototype. Our application and tribology experts can develop a unique design proposal and supply samples at short notice.
TriboShield and TriboMate paired coatings can be supplied to nearly any surface, regardless of shape and material and:
• are lightweight
• reduce friction
• offer an excellent wear life
• reduce system noise
