Biomedical materials have come a long way, from inert supportive materials to bioactive and responsive implants. Biocompatible and bioabsorbable materials have made life with implants better and manageable. Portable devices which could continuously monitor the condition of the patients by measuring vital signals and biosensing, wirelessly transmitting the data to medical practitioner who could give timely feedback and initiate therapy from remote location are nearing commercialization. The advances in nano materials and nano characterization techniques have made this feasible.
