RemeOs™ - Coming soon!
The company´s next-generation patented bioresorbable metal, RemeOs™, is in clinical phase with promising interim results. RemeOs™ is based on naturally occurring essential metals in the human body: magnesium, zinc and calcium. The material does not contain any foreign elements to the human body like Yttrium, Gadolinium, Neodymium nor any other (REE).
Clinical trials have shown excellent results proving the safety and functionality of the material. Its high mechanical properties and degradation characteristics are well suitable for load-bearing clinical applications as well as in pediatrics. This alloy has been developed over the course of eight years and marks an important milestone in materials research. Now for first time surgeons have the possibility to use safe bioresorbable materials in load-bearing indications. Strength of patented RemeOs™ implants is closer to traditional (stainless steel, titanium) metal implants than polymer implants. With the upcoming RemeOs™ implants surgeon can achieve similar fixation as with traditional metal implants. Also operation technique principles with RemeOs™ implants are same as with traditional metal implants.
In many cases, traditional metal implants have to be removed due to long term adverse effects. Removal surgery increases patient’s discomfort and risk of complications. RemeOs™ implants eliminate the need for implant removal. Stress-shielding associated with traditional metal implants may result in the bone atrophy and the osteolysis. RemeOs™ resorbable metal implants resorb into bone, assisting in the healing process. Due to the implant resorption, the risks of any implant-related long-term complications will be eliminated.
