Ultrasound-enabled weldable implants for orthopaedic trauma and sports injuries
OsteoWeld’s game changing platform technology uses ultrasound to weld implanted materials within the body resulting in a range of potential applications.
Our next-generation ultrasound-enabled implants for orthopaedic trauma and sports injuries offer increased opportunity and flexibility to orthopaedic surgeons to more efficiently deal with these types of injuries.
Intellectual Propery & Patents
Our platform technology, The SutureWeld device and the Alpha Nail device are patented and have received initial 510(k) clearances.
OsteoWeld is in the process of obtaining both the ISO13485 and ISO14001 certifications.
Ultrasonic Welding System
Our Ultrasonic Welding System features a generator and a simple hand piece that gives the surgeon feedback to signal when welding is complete. This ensures that the welding process is precise, controlled and provides strong and reproduceable fixation.
All regulatory and certification requirements have been initiated.
The Alpha Nail
An intramedullary rodding system comprising of titanium rods with PEEK over-mould and PEEK interlocking pins for long bone minimally invasive fracture fixation. 510(k) clearance received for application in the Ulna bone (application to be extended to other long bones).
A biodegradable suture locking system for tissue to bone treatment avoiding suture creep and knot slippage. 510(k) clearance received.
We have identified various other products for different applications. Amongst others fixation of PLLA and PEEK directly to bone or bone cement for reconstructive (implant) surgeries.
