Implants are medical devices designed and manufactured to enhance an existing biological structure, support a damaged biological structure, or even replace a missing biological structure. They are extensively used in surgery all around our bodies, such as limbs, ears, mouth, etc.

Prof. Kátia de Freitas Alvarenga from São Paulo University located in Brazil was invited to write an implant-related article for Wearable Technology. Her team showed us a story about the function of cochlear implant in hearing impairment caused by Kearns-Sayre syndrome (KSS). The effects of AASI (a kind of individual sound amplification devices) were compared in a pair of twin sisters.

Oral implants, calcaneo-stop implants and pacemakers related research were also collected in this issue. Implants research in English speaking developed countries are spread all over the world. Here, we hope to help researchers know more about the implant-related research situation in Spanish speaking countries.
