Ability to Match Degradation Profile with Healing Profile – Tailoring the degradation rate of your bioabsorbable material product allows physicians to more closely match its duration within the body with the rate of new tissue growth. These matched rates promote tissue differentiation and help to maximize the benefit from your implantable device.
Absence of Stress Shielding (Osteopenia) – Long term and permanent implants can frequently lead to osteopenia, or loss of bone density, due to the reduced stress experienced by the affected bone that has been absorbed by the implant. Because implants incorporating our bioabsorbable products dissipate with time, bone density is less likely to be affected leading to improved recovery.
Controlled Degradation and Bioabsorption – Having the ability to control the degradation rates of our biomaterial products provides flexibility for multiple treatment options ranging from the acute to longer term therapy.
Controlled Load Transfer – For dental implants, the interface with bone plays a critical role in how the implant is accepted and functions for long term well-being. By controlling the degradation rate of implants made with our bioabsorbable materials, the stresses commonly associated with these implants are reduced.
Cost Effective Compared to Metal Equivalents – In lieu of more expensive metal implantable devices, Zeus bioabsorbable materials present a much more practical alternative for these health care applications.
FDA-Approved for Medical Devices – Zeus bioabsorbables are used in FDA approved medical devices.
Finite Functionality – Because we can modulate the degradation rates or these products, patients are less likely to experience unwanted interactions and discomfort from these devices.
No Explantation Surgery – As our bioabsorbables are slowly absorbed into the body, there is no need for a second surgery to remove an implanted device made with our biodegradable products.
No Metal Corrosion-Related Interactions with the Body – Because these biocompatible products are not metal, they present no risk of corrosion while the implanted material is being absorbed.
Provides Novel and Alternate IP Position – With this ever-expanding field of biocompatible and absorbable medical devices, our bioabsorbables present an attractive opportunity for invention, novel applications, and intellectual property development.
Safely Existing in the Body – Our bioabsorbable products can safely exist in the body for extended periods and elicit no adverse effects as is often associated with implanted metals.
Tailored to Customer’s Specifications – Our bioabsorbable products can be customized to meet a broad spectrum of specifications including multiple extruded forms, sizes, molded designs, and material strengths.
