In total hip replacement surgery, most traditional designs of femur components have a long stem. Short hip stems have only recently been introduced, and these are presumed to reduce proximal stress shielding compared to traditional, long stems. However, due to their smaller contact area with the bone, high peak stresses and areas of stress shielding could appear in the proximal femur, especially in the presence of atypical bone geometries.

The learning curve for Metal 3D Printing can be steep, but scaling it is the solution to unlocking a higher build success rate. The Metal AM Academy is a two-day workshop at Materialise HQ designed to shorten the learning curve for Metal AM and help you avoid build failures. If you’re looking to understand the various factors which come into play in Metal AM, and how to manage these factors, learn from our experts at the Academy.
Join the Materialise 3DP Academy, a full-day workshop at Materialise HQ, and learn about the strengths and weaknesses of the most relevant technologies and materials. You will also get acquainted with best practices in design & engineering and observe a number of groundbreaking AM cases firsthand.
The Prototyping Xpo trade fair in Kortrijk is designed for everyone in the field of product development. The focus is on the whole design process, from the original idea through to setting up a business model and actual production in a pilot run or small series. Meet the Materialise team at the Prototyping Xpo and bring us all your questions on selecting 3D printing technologies and materials, designing for 3D Printing, or making the most of the technology.
