National Center of Innovation for Biomaterials in Orthopaedic Research
         
 

NIAR, along with Wichita State University and Via Christi Health, was a founding partner in the National Center of Innovation for Biomaterials in Orthopaedic Research - CIBOR for short.

CIBOR is dedicated to researching and developing composite materials for use in a wide variety of bioscience and medical applications including the manufacturing of orthopaedic implants. Composites possess several notable characteristics which promise to enhance the performance of many medical devices.

These inherent properties could will allow significant improvements in battlefield medicine, surgical instrumentation, rehabilitation and sports medicine, and orthopaedic implantations. From its advanced research facilities in Wichita, Kansas, CIBOR draws upon the composites expertise of the city's well-established aviation manufacturing community and the National Institute for Aviation Research to deliver global leadership in the design and fabrication of composites-based medical technology.
