Founded by Dr. Orlando Auciello in 2013, Original Biomedical Implants is one of the most innovative companies in the world.
OBI has offices in the USA and Mexico
Prosthetics covered with UNCD decrease friction and corrosion.
Metals have a relatively high friction coefficient, which is problematic for articulating implants such as hip and knee joints. Not only is motion inhibited by friction, but also leads to wear that can introduce harmful particulates into living tissues. Moreover, chemical attack by oral or body fluids produces degradation of the materials. UNCD coatings exhibit the lowest friction coefficient of any known material and experiences virtually no wear in biomedical applications.
UNCD templates to grow nano-sensors.
Implanted materials tend to be hydrophilic, attract cells and soon become clogged in certain applications including hear glaucoma valves and stents. This results in frequent surgeries to replace implants. UNCD coating is extremely hydrophobic and resist liquid mediated surface adsorption of biomolecules.
Dental implants covered with UNCD last longer without rejection from the patient.
Titanium and other metals are corroded rapidly due to chemical attack by oral or body fluids resulting in early failure and short surgical replacement cycles. UNCD protects the implants from corrosion since the diamond nature of the coatings is impervious to chemical attack from a strong corrosive medium.
Novel UNCD-coated electrodes with ≥ 10x times longer life and safer than current LIBs.
Chemical corrosion of electrodes induced by Lithium chemical attack of the electrode metals decreases battery capacity over time. UNCD coated electrodes offer an insulating barrier to prevent chemical attack from Lithium and promote extended battery life.
