Guy lubricates often with oil. Nature lubricates completely with water. natural water is a negative lubricant, however the addition of proteins, specifically glycoproteins, can adjust surfaces to lead them to way more lubricating at sluggish speeds. figuring out how nature does this, and the actual constructions concerned, isn't just very important for the certainty of ailments similar to osteoarthritis, but in addition crucial for the profitable program of articulating implants, corresponding to hips and knees, in addition to the advance of scientific units equivalent to catheters and speak to lenses. a number of significant purposes of water-based lubrication are already in position within the own care and nutrition industries, and extra commercial purposes of water-based lubrication can have an important confident impression at the surroundings.
This e-book is the 1st of its type. It brings jointly the newest learn in organic and biomimetic, water-based lubrication and is authored via the world's specialists within the box.
