Armies of NATO countries are involved in foreign operations, where there are great risks of injuries during combat operations. In addition to other injuries soldiers may suffer infraction or destruction of bones or their parts. Research in the use of biocompatible materials finds solutions to successfully restore this harm. This article deals with the evaluation methods that are typical of hydroxyapatite biocompatible coating. This coating with its poor mechanical properties must be deposited on the base, which also must be biocompatible. In order to get perfect bonding with the natural bone, it is necessary to have the titanium implant surface covered by bio-ceramics coating, which is similar to human bone - hydroxyapatite-like coating.
