RegJoint™ is an implant designed for small joints in hands and feet for rheumatoid and osteoarthritis patients
Discover the advantages of RegJoint™
RegJoint™ is a bioresorbable implant meant for surgical treatment for small joint arthrosis in hands and feet. It is a porous device made of well-known lactic acid based fibrous material. RegJoint™ is a tissue engineered solution using body´s own healing mechanism to create a pseudo joint.
RegJoint™ is guiding normal scar formation in joint cavity after a surgical operation, forming a flexible connective tissue. In 3 months this tissue is strong enough to act as a joint. Now RegJoint™ is no longer needed and its´ degradation starts. In 2 to 3 years RegJoint™ disappears from the joint cavity the only degradation products being water and carbon dioxide.
RegJoint™ has proven to provide excellent pain relief and functionality to operated joints for over 10 years.
