"Development of materials for biomedical implants (metals, polymers, ceramics and composites) is directly determined by characteristics and nature of the tissue, organs and systems that are being replaced or supplemented. Modern material investigations at micro- and nano- level enable introspection into new aspects of material behaviour and offer possibilities to significantly improve systems in use, from different aspects, such as improvement of manufacturing technologies or surface technologies modifications. Biomaterial investigations from a tribology point of view offer contribution to testing realised in this area, especially with use of novel devices for research in area of nanotribology.
