Medical devices are becoming more intricate as they are often made from a wide range of materials with an increasing number of components. In addition, medical devices face stringent requirements to ensure they are safe to be implanted and will not be rejected by the human body. Joining and assembly of medical materials and devices will provide a comprehensive analysis of the practical techniques which can be used to join and assemble medical materials. Chapters will cover the joining and assembly of the three most widely used medical materials; polymers, metals and ceramics. The book will also address other important issues such as testing and regulations.
