CFOAM® carbon foam has found a most unusual place in the medical community. Because some carbon foams have microstructures and mechanical properties like bone, CFOAM has been used as a bone replacement for experimentation and training purposes.

CFOAM carbon foam is inexpensive and available in large quantities, and it can be supplied with a variety of properties, making it an attractive analog to bone for experimenting with implants and other fasteners and attachments. It can be drilled, cut, and shaped with a number of instruments.
