The rigidity of implants directly affects the velocities of biochemical processes, not only on their interfaces with live tissues, but also on the walls of diaphyses. Insufficient changes in stresses (deformations) lead to the retardation of biochemical processes and successive appearance of pathological processes (e.g. the appearance of osteoporotic bone tissues). The rigidity of the implant (creating the „stress shield“) has been reduced by peripheral elastic/poroelastic layer applied as an outside cover of the implant stem.
