A model of tissue differentiation at the bone-implant interface is proposed. The basic hypothesis of the model is that the mechanical environment determines the tissue differentiation. The stimulus chosen is related to the bone-implant micromotions. Equations governing the evolution of the interfacial tissue are proposed and combined with a finite element code to determine the evolution of the fibrous tissue around prostheses. The model is applied to the case of an idealized hip prosthesis.
