With more than 100,000 FDA-cleared spinal implants under our belt in the US, you can trust that we know a thing or two about transforming the capabilities of small bone implants using our Intimate Bond™ technology.
Intimate Bond™ is a nanotopology solution for small bone PEEK implants—produced under ISO 13485 certification—that promotes true bone cell attachment.
Benefits include the elimination of the microscopic gap between bone and device on spinal, dental, orthopedic and small bone implants and the attendant infections, osteolysis and competing cell attachment.
Intimate Bond™ will...
Why can’t others prevent fibroblast encapsulation of implants and get bone cells to attach to PEEK? Because they don’t use the right nanotopology.
Nanotopology is just one aspect, though a critical one, of the world at nanoscale. Nanoscale is all around us, but invisible at 1 billionth the size of what we see. It’s beyond our very best optical microscopes – even beyond the ability of visible light to image.
What’s so special about nanoscale?
Two very important factors:
- The majority of biological processes occur at nanoscale.
- Materials behave far differently at nanoscale.
Quantum effects change the behavior of a material’s particles which leads to dramatically different performance, plus…
Surface area explodes, exposing a billion times more atoms or molecules than micro scale, providing far greater reactivity.
Implant Surfaces uses that nanoscale intersection of biology and physics to tailor the material characteristics of implants to the biological processes of different cell types in the human body. We can deliver the implant performance desired.
By operating at nanoscale, where most biological processes occur and where quantum effects allow materials to interact directly with the surface chemistry of cells, we’re able to exploit those nanoscale quantum effects to attract, attach or repel:
- Endothelial Cells
- Gingival Fibroblasts
- Periodontal Ligament Fibroblasts
