We use breakthrough 3D printing technology (Additive Manufacturing) for the manufacture of implants. Additive Manufacturing allows us for the production of patient-specific products with unlimited geometry. We also use mesenchymal stem cell technology.

Profile Description

The problem of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system affects millions of patients around the world.
Metal implants were the solution at some point, but there are several problems:

• Physicomechanical properties of metal, other than bone, additional which implants loosen and require replacement, which necessitates reoperation
• Integration of bone with a metal implant is not always successful
• Metal, even titanium, causes oxidative processes and, in addition, various neoplasms

We solve the problems described above by making implants from PEEK.

Polyether ether ketone (PEEK) is a colourless organic thermoplastic polymer in the polyaryletherketone (PAEK) family, used in engineering and medical applications. It was originally introduced by Victrex PLC, then Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) in the early 1980s.

PEEK is finding increased use in spinal fusion devices and in orthopedic surgery. It offers optimal bone growth and is radiolucent.
