Devices made from our high performance polymers are proven to offer improved biomechanics and comfort.
PEEK-OPTIMATM features a modulus similar to human bone, which reduces stress shielding and leads to improved physiological loading.1
PEEK-OPTIMATM biocompatibility in conformance with ISO 10993-1, for use in the manufacture of medical devices for long-term implantable orthopedic applications.2
PEEK-OPTIMATM polymer’s superior wear performance offers an alternative load-bearing material to metal designed to address metal ion concerns.3
Field, et al. reports on a clinical trial of a MOTIS™ acetabular cup. Overall, all 25 acetabular cups exhibited excellent fixation at up to 3 years and 19 patients have shown positive results.
T. M. Grupp, et al (2013) reveal reveals favourable wear behaviour of a new rotating hinge knee design made of CFR-PEEK/ZrN coupling in comparison with the clinically established CFR-PEEK/cobalt-chromium articulation was found.
A. Giurea, et.al (2014) showcase excellent clinical results of the EnduRo total knee arthroplasty (TKA) made of PEEK OPTIMA polymer. No premature material failure or unusual biological response to the new bearing material could be detected.
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
