Smart Orthopedic Screws for Imaging through Tissue


Clemson University researchers have developed “smart” orthopedic screws that incorporate x-ray excitable materials so detection through tissue is possible. This approach enables noninvasive monitoring and detection of implant strain so preventative measures can be taken to limit patient stress.

Computer-controlled embroidery design and stitching for Precision Control of Tensile Properties of woven textiles

Fiber and Films

Clemson University researchers have developed a computational fabrication system that allows for the customization of material properties of fabrics at a larger scale. By utilizing a novel path planning algorithm, the system creates a stitch design that, when added to the fabric, changes the stiffness of the material based on the design needs.
