NOVELTY – The polymer biomaterials production involves performing acquisition of medical data and manufacturing physical model in a three dimensional geometry. A substrate is prepared, machined and then coated. The coating process is performed by adding reagents, where deposition, polymerization and reticulation processes are performed for producing polymer biomaterials. The data acquisition is performed by using X-ray, computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). USE – Method for producing polymer biomaterials for use as polymer supports, scaffolds and coatings for artificial joint prostheses (Claimed). ADVANTAGE – The method improves mechanical properties of polymers by achieving satisfactory adhesion between hydrogel and substrate in a simple manner, and efficiently minimizes wear of the components that form orthopedic devices, for example, which is one of the main causes of failure of such devices. DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING(S) – The drawing shows a schematic sectional representation of machining of substrate. (Drawing includes non-English language text).
