At Woven Orthopedics, we are developing the 1st technology specifically designed to standardize the way surgeons enhance fixation in orthopedic surgery, by focusing on the screw-to-bone Interface.
In fracture repair surgery, more than 279 separate procedures use screws and plates to achieve fixation. A common challenge surgeons face is achieving adequate screw engagement.
For decades the orthopedic industry has attempted to enhance screw fixation by modifying implants. However, most surgeons are left with their own creativity and utilize improvised techniques in order to enhance fixation, with each technique varying as to where and when it can be used.
Woven Orthopedics Technologies' OGmend Implant system offers the 1st standardized solution designed to enhance screw fixation. It does so by focusing on the underlying cause…the screw-to-bone interface.
The OGmend Implant System leverages a unique biotextile to enhance fixation in both the short-term and long-term. Our first-generation device is manufactured from a biopolymer with extensive clinical history and is designed to increase surface area contact between the bone and screw, distribute load transfer to help bone healing and remodeling, and enable boney ingrowth. The OGmend Implant System is simple to use and more cost effective than the improvised solutions surgeons are forced to employ today.
