Application of carbon materials in traumatology and orthopedics
Carbon fibrous materials of the “Ural” type, prepared from hydrocellulose fibre, satisfy all the medical and technical requirements for use in medical practice. They have optimum physicomechanical characteristics, do not become torn off by the organism, and do not require a repeated operation for removal.
The “Ural-LM” assortment of carbon tapes which has been developed is recommended for use in traumatology and orthopedics.
