In this paper the authors deals with the heredity behavior of hydroxyapatite-based composite used for cranioplastic surgery. It is shown that biomimetic prostheses, for their microstructural morphology, have a mechanical behavior that can be well described by an isotropic fractional-order hereditary model. The three-axial isotropic behavior is framed in the context of fractional-order calculus and same details about thermodynamical restrictions of memory functions used in the formulation of the three-axial isotropic constitutive equations. A mechanical model that corresponds, exactly, to the three-axial isotropic hereditariness is also introduced in the paper
