Disruptive implants regenerate bone after surgery
Every year 1.6 million people in Europe require orthopaedic surgery after bone, ligament or tendon injuries. Current implant materials produce imperfect healing outcomes but NORAKER's technology was adapted for knee ligament regeneration and validated for potential interventions in bone, tendon and ligament injuries. NORAKER's bio-absorbable composite implants can recreate native-like bone structure with no inflammation or pain and very low re-operational risk. The EU-funded REBOOT project will introduce and validate these new first-in-class implants to achieve full healing after orthopaedic surgeries. This involves scale-up of the bio-composite implant for industrial production, supporting the transition towards a truly regenerative orthopaedic surgery.
