Auxetic material in biomedical applications: a systematic review

Andrés Diaz Melgarejo, Jose Luis Ramírez, Astrid Rubiano


This study reviews and analyzes the different auxetic materials that have been developed in recent years. The search for research articles was carried out through one of the largest databases such as ScienceDirect, where 845 articles were collected, of which several filters were carried out to have a base of 386 articles. There are a variety of materials depending on their structure, composition, and industrial application, highlighting biomedical applications from tissue engineering, cell proliferation, skeletal muscle regeneration, transportation, bio-prosthesis to biomaterial. The present paper provides an overview of auxetic materials and its applications, providing a guide for designers and manufacturers of devices and accessories in any industry.
