An Austrian SME has developed the first functioning screws for medical and surgical purposes which are made of human biological bone material. These screws are used to (re)connect or stabilize injured bones in the case of bone fractures or arthrosis without the need for metal implants. In this way an improved healing process and an improved welfare of patients can be reached while costs are reduced.
Potential partners should be capable of distributing the technology and should ensure a professional support for surgeons and operating staff. The Austrian company expects the cooperation partner to be in close contact with surgeons to get direct feedback from operating staff for further product developments. A licence agreement or a commercial agreement is sought for this type of cooperation, depending on the state of the actual patenting process in the targeting country.
The company is also open for cooperation with tissue banks, which are capable of supplying sterilized bone tissue. A manufacturing agreement is sought for this type of cooperation.
