Broken bones also appreciate some warmth. A biodegradable bone implant can stimulate bone regrowth using heat, doubling the amount of bone tissue regrowth in mice.

Our bones naturally rebuild themselves after small fractures. But with severe traumas, they can’t always fully grow back on their own.

Bone transplants can be used to treat such injuries, but spare bone tissue isn’t always available. So, Huaiyu Wang at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Shenzhen and his colleagues developed an alternative approach using a heat-generating implant.
