We collaborate with you to design and manufacture custom biomedical structures that exhibit a variety of functional behaviors and performance characteristics:
  • Mimic the body’s native structures
  • Rapid integration within the body
  • Flexibility
  • Controlled porosity, density, and absorbability
  • Shape memory
  • Radial and tensile strength
  • Thin and compact for low-profile delivery
