About BoneGrafix Inc.
BoneGrafix’s is developing a product portfolio focused on purely synthetic bone products (i.e., implants) that possess the critical attributes for new bone formation and reduce the need for costly and invasive harvesting procedures of the patient’s bone that are currently used.
BoneGrafix will employ its proprietary manufacturing process that uses rapid prototyping technology in combination with its proprietary metal ion technology to create cost-effective synthetic bone for grafting that retain critical attributes required for bone growth. Moreover, BoneGrafix’s manufacturing process will be the only technology that can incorporate synthetic drugs or biologics into the matrix during the manufacturing process and thus provide unique treatment options for surgeons and dentists. In addition to the bone matrix being utilized as a drug delivery matrix to speed bone healing, an additional beneficial feature of BoneGrafix’s manufacturing process is the ability to incorporate the information provided by a patient’s CT scan into a synthetic bone implant and create a custom fit for the bone deficient region.
