Advanced Biomaterials and Biomedical Textile Technology
As a functional component of a device, biomedical textile structures are used in applications such as heart valves, endovascular grafts, soft tissue repair products, load-sharing scaffolds, and neurovascular stents. Based on the biomimetic requirements of an application, a material structure is custom designed by engineers who have highly technical experience with medical textile-forming technologies. At Secant Medical Components, we apply our extensive knowledge of textile engineering methods—knitting, braiding, and weaving—to create high-performance biomedical structures that assist in the internal repair and recovery of the body.
Selecting the most appropriate material(s) to meet an application’s requirements is a crucial step in developing a biomedical structure. Armed with expertise in microbiology, chemistry, and biomedical engineering, Secant Medical Components’ cross-functional team collaborates with you to recommend a polymeric, metallic, or resorbable material (or blend thereof) that promotes biological integration and encourages healing. As part of this process, we employ our proficiency in biomaterials research and analysis within our state-of-the-art Materials Science Laboratory.
Secant Medical Components produces a bioresorbable resin platform that serves as a platform for regenerative healing. Made from poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS), Regenerez® is available for a variety of in vivo applications for cardiovascular, orthopedics, neurovascular, and tissue engineering.
