This is a good development about the team of engineers and physicians which had made a surprising discovery that offers a target for designing new materials for hip implants that are less susceptible to the joint's normal wear and tear. This can help a lot in lessen the number of depuy pinnacle lawsuits. http://www.depuypinnaclelawsuit.com/recall

Reuters quoted Professor of materials science and engineering at Northwestern University, Laurence Marks, saying,“Graphite has been used as a lubricant for over a century. It is a classic lubricant, and it appears to form naturally.” Moreover, Reuters reports that artificial joint manufacturers could use this knowledge to design better metal-on-metal hip replacements that are less likely to grind and shed metal ions by exploiting the spontaneously forming graphite.

This has been one of the developments with the the prosthesis industry. Metal-on-metal hip implants were made to last longer than ordinary prosthesis. Though some have experienced severe complications after having the implant for too long. Others opted to file lawsuits against the manufacturer.

I think this one good step to prevent hip replacement’s premature failure. Because of premature failure, many of the patients are left with more pain and sometimes, immobility claimed some unfortunate patients. DePuy Orthopaedics, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is faced with a large number of lawsuits because of their defective hip replacement systems, which affected thousands of patients.

Joint problems?

Use ANABOLIC STEROIDS such as Deca to "lubricate" them and make them stronger.

Don't believe me? Google it.
