An Overview: Biomechanical Characteristics of Metal Plate Fixators and Composite Plate Fixators

Millions of people around the world are undergoing surgery due to injuries and trauma, and doctors have been using metal fixators for a long time. These fixators are strong and because of biocompatibility concerns, they are rejected by the human body. The finite element analysis of the fixators was carried out in this paper and the mechanical properties of the fixators were analysed. High stresses on the fixators are found to be formed, which causes a mismatch between the bone and the fixator. The composite fixator, epoxy and carbon fibre were manufactured and tested for mechanical and biomechanical properties as an alternative to the metal fixator. The young composite fixator module was found to be very similar to the young bone module, which is one of the essential requirements for biomechanical compatibility for the good healing of the human bone. It is concluded that the composite fixators are stronger than the metal fixators in the analysis. Better is the composite fixators Metal fixators are due to their young modulus, which is similar to the young modulus of the human bone.
