Slippery material for lubricating joints inspired by nature

For some time, scientists have been aware that synovial fluid in joints contains a natural substance that helps keep them well lubricated. Now, by mimicking its properties, engineers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD, hope to develop a new material that delivers long-lasting lubrication in artificial joints, and other specific spots in the body where surfaces move against each other. 533 more words
