The implant, which takes the form of a snowflake, is machine embroidered in white and blue polyester with the base cloth dissolved providing a lace-like effect. The device was custom designed for a patient who required reconstructive shoulder surgery. The implant was required to help anchor the artificial shoulder by stitching or fixing it to existing tissue or bone. The device was exhibited at the ‘Extreme Textiles’ exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum. The record is available from the Smithsonian Institution, New York: http://collections.si.edu/search/record/chndm_2004-15-1.
