Innovation:

A Better Bone Cement to Help Mend Fractures - a calcium phosphate based cement mixture that is biocompatible, ensuring the body does not reject the cement; non-toxic, allowing for degradation
without release of toxic materials into the body; has a similar tensile strength to human bone, to avoid additional fractures and damage to surrounding tissues; is completely degradable, allowing for the body to remove the cement when fully recovered.
