A less painful alternative to knee replacement surgery
Knee replacement is an expensive, painful and complicated medical solution to osteoarthritis, the second leading cause of work disability after heart disease. FibroFix Cartilage is a product designed particularly for knee joints, comprising biostable and biocompatible material. It also allows more flexibility and aids cartilage regeneration. The FibroFix project is seeking funds to continue developing the product as a less expensive and less-painful alternative to knee surgery, hopefully obviating the need for a long post-operative recovery process resulting from conventional solutions.
