An investigation into the effects of micro electric currents on the material of bone is presented along with a review of the ideas and concepts associated with bone’s response to load and the alleged piezoelectric phenomena. A comparison is made between the structure of bone, its strength and stress generated potential. Evidence is forwarded to show that micro currents may influence the behaviour of bone material and it is demonstrated that these effects may be understood through reference to the limiting molar conductivities of the ions in the material and the solutions used.
