Honeycomb plastics offer a peek into future of smart prosthetic design

Published: 30 June 2021

In a new paper published today in the journal Materials & Design, a University of Glasgow-led team of engineers describe how they have used 3D printing techniques to add new properties to a plastic known as polyether ether ketone, or PEEK. The team’s paper, titled ‘Energy absorption and self-sensing performance of 3D printed CF/PEEK cellular composites’, is published in Materials & Design. The research was supported by funding from the University of Glasgow and Khalifa University.
