Why “PEEK” offers success for the manufacture of medical parts

Medical devices that are intended for long-term contact with body tissues must meet particularly high quality requirements for registration in Europe or in the US. The manufacturers have to demonstrate on the one hand, that the raw materials are suitable for the respective area of application, and on the other hand demonstrate how they ensure consistent quality.

Today more and more manufacturers of medical products are using PEEK (polyetheretherketone) for bone surgery, but also in areas of traumatology and orthopaedics. Why PEEK? Because this material is biocompatible, inert to body fluids and can be processed relatively easy with high precision micro moulding for individual implants or surgical instruments.

PEEK provides a great benefit: It saves weight, allows more design freedom and a greater functional integration, it also scores with X-ray transparency and elasticity which corresponds approximately to bone. At the same time it is a lower cost alternative to Titan the classic implant material, especially when using medical instruments or endoscopes, where the good electrical insulation properties of PEEK come into play.

The complete detachment of ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues from their associated bones within the body is relatively commonplace injuries, particularly among athletes. Such injuries are generally the result of excessive stresses being placed on these tissues. For example, tissue detachment may occur as the result of an accident such as a fall, over-exertion during a work-related activity, during the course of an athletic event, or activities. For a complete detachment, however, surgery may be needed to re-attach the soft tissue to its associated bone or bones. Numerous devices made out of PEEK material are currently available to re-attach soft tissue to bone. Examples of such currently-available devices include screws, staples, suture anchors and tacks.
