R&D of resorbable medical devices

New medical devices are developed to enable quicker, easier and safer surgery. This will reduce risk of complications and shorten time needed for recovery.

Absorbable/resorbable medical devices are left in the body where after they are safely resorbed by the tissue.

The innovative resorbable surgical products of the company are unique and protected by patent(s). Devices in development are intended for urology and orthopaedics. LigaTie® is initially intended for veterinary surgery and is clinically tested.
