  • Dynamic Mechanical Analysis of Hydrogel
    Hydrogels, which are water-swollen cross-linked polymers, are becoming increasingly important in a wide array of biomedical applications. One of the earliest uses of hydrogels was in the development of soft contact lenses and currently they are also being used in areas including cosmetic
  • Compliance of Hydrogel Mock Arteries
    The elastic response of rubber-like materials is often based on the Mooney-Rivlin model, which describes the material's stress-strain relationship as a function of two empirically determined constants C1 and C2. These constants are the two invariants of the deformation tensor. Knowledge of the
  • Replacing Cartilage With Hydrogels
    Replacing cartilage with a functionally equivalent soft solid is considered a superior treatment for arthritic joints. Cambridge Polymer Group has patented a very low friction elastic hydrogel material based on the concept of entrapped hydrophilic moieties and dangling polymer brushes
  • NAVAIR NEWS: HydroActive Shaft Seal Success Story
    This article, recently featured on the Navy SBIR/STTR Success Stories, highlights how HydroActive Shaft Seals function as an emergency flooding system providing. reliable and low total ownership cost sealing solution for ships. Under normal. operating conditions, hydrogel embedded foam and a lip
  • Injectable Hydrogels for Tissue Bulking
    CPG scientists have developed a formulation of injectable hydrogel that can be used to reinforce human tissue, acting as a bulking agent. CPG hydrogels use a wellrecognized biocompatible synthetic polymer, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) that can be physically crosslinked after injection. Alternate tissue
