Summary Degeneration of the weight bearing bones of the ageing population often requires the inception of metallic biomaterials. Research in this area is receiving increased attention globally. However, most of today's artificial bone materials are dense and suffer from problems of adverse reaction, biomechanical mismatch and lack of appropriate space for the regeneration of new bone tissues. In the present study, novel ZrTi alloy foams with a porous structure and mechanical properties that are very close to those of bone were fabricated. These ZrTi alloy foams are biocompatible, and display a porous structure permitting the ingrowth of new bone tissues.
