Biomedical Structures, a designer, developer and manufacturer of biomedical textiles for medical devices and other advanced clinical applications, announced its new BIOFELT® absorbable scaffold for implant devices in orthopaedics, general surgery and other in vivo applications. BIOFELT’s unique non-woven structure provides a fibrous matrix platform that enables natural tissue ingrowth in surgical applications.
BIOFELT is a three dimensional non-woven structure with very high surface area and void volume designed to promote natural cell adhesion and regeneration. Produced from PGA (Polyglycolic Acid), PLLA (Poly L Lactic Acid) and copolymers such as PLGA (co-polylactic acid/glycolic acid), BIOFELT can be used as a component of medical devices or surgical systems with the benefit of bioabsorbability.
