Abstract: In attempts to improve the quality of life (QOL), methods that make use of the symbiosis between medicine and technology are sought continuously. The insight in biomedical processes opens the way to a technically controlled rehabilitation. One such approach uses the know-how on bone remodeling and bone growth in a dental environment. By applying an immediate load on a newly placed implant, the bone growth is positively stimulated. However, excessive loading should be avoided at all times. Therefore, a fully implantable device was designed that is able to monitor the load continuously and provide feedback when overloading occurs. To the authors' knowledge, it is the first time such a system is proposed. In this paper, the design of the smart dental prosthesis is elaborated.
