ORTHO Applications

Our biomaterial solutions have been chosen by innovative orthopedic device manufacturers for over a decade in a range of applications.

PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural

PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer blends proven performance with superior wear, safety and comfort. Since Invibio introduced PEEK-OPTIMA as the first implantable PEEK polymer in 1999, it has earned the confidence and gained the acceptance of the global medical community.

The properties of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural polymer are closer to bone than metal, so there is less stress shielding.1
