We pioneered the BioBrace™ implant to empower clinicians and raise the standard of care for the treatment of ligament and tendon injuries. The BioBrace™ implant is an innovative biocomposite that is intended for the reinforcement of soft tissue where weakness exists.
The BioBrace is not yet FDA cleared for commercial sale or clinical use in the United States.
Its biomechanical profile enables load sharing to reinforce ligament and tendon repair throughout the healing process.
Through its proprietary open porous architecture and biocompatible materials, the BioBrace™ facilitates a rapid cellular infiltration to accelerate organized tissue regeneration.
After the healing process is complete, the implant will fully resorb to restore the anatomy to its normal state.
The proprietary biocomposite design of the BioBrace™ features a highly-porous collagen matrix, embedded with bioresorbable polymer microfilaments, to provide an open 3-D biologic scaffold with strength.
Using biocompatible and bioresorbable materials, the BioBrace™ is an entirely new approach to augment soft tissue. The durable implant is easy to handle and readily added to existing surgical technique.
The highly porous scaffold is designed to facilitate a more rapid cell integration and re-vascularization, to optimize the healing process.
After the graft is implanted, the body repopulates new cells and blood vessels through the tissue graft to reconstruct the ACL over time. Prolonged recovery following ACL reconstructive surgery remains a challenge for both the patient and surgeon. Biorez has designed and developed the BioBrace™ implant to help solve this problem.
The natural healing process for ligaments and tendons can be long and slow due to low cellular activity and low vascularity within connective tissues. As a result, rehabilitation and recovery are long, often incomplete, and risk of reinjury is high.
Up to 29% graft failure (1)
Up to 34% re-tear (2)
Up to 16% re-tear (3)
Biorez Inc. is a late development stage orthopedic implant company that has a simple vision: to help patients with debilitating tendon and ligament injuries return to their normal, pre-injury activity levels sooner and safer than the current standard of care.
