nanoMag®'s Advanced Magnesium Products

nanoMAG produces magnesium sheet and short-run specialty alloys with unique products that can be used in a variety of innovative biomedical and structural applications.

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.

Bioabsorbable Implants

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
  • Stents

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
