Bioabsorbable Implant Technology
Medical Magnesium develops metallic bioabsorbable implants for orthopedic and trauma surgery. The implants are mechanically stable and physiologically degradable after fracture healing by the body. A second surgery to remove the implants becomes needless.
Our goal is to be able to offer surgeons and patients tailor made, highly functional magnesium solutions. We want to contribute to a next generation of implants, which make more and more single-surgery therapies possible. Metal removal is no longer necessary through the use of innovative bioabsorbable implants.
As a startup from RWTH Aachen, we bring results from interdisciplinary research in engineering and medicine into surgical practice. After extensive tests, a material technology was developed on which basiss the first products are transferred to the clinic.
