Biomedical Applications of Magnesium
nanoMAG's advanced magnesium technology makes it an ideal material for use in innovative biomedical products for both internal and external applications.
High-strength, bioabsorbable BioMg® (alloyed with elements that are essential nutrients to foster new bone growth) is ideal for a variety of implanted surgical applications. The bioabsorption rate has been tuned to fix bone fractures and then disappear – eliminating the pain, risk and cost of removing non-absorbable implants.
- Fixation in knees
- Fixation of shoulder trauma
- Craniofacial reconstruction
- Small bone fixation in fingers and toes
- Scaffolding for spinal fusion
- Scaffolding for hip and femur trauma
Biomedical External Devices
nanoMAG's Thixomolded ThermoMechanical Processed (TTMP) Magnesium Alloy , used for external medical devices and surgical tools, offers high strength and is extremely light. This eases weight load on both patients and surgical teams.
- Knee braces
- Foot braces
- Elbow braces
- Artificial limbs
- Surgical tools and boxes
- Drilling and cutting guards
