The Future of Joint Repair
CartiHeal is a Medical Technology company that develops a cell-free, off-the-shelf implant for the treatment of cartilage and bone defects. Cartilage injuries affect millions of patients around the world, and characteristically cause severe pain and disability. Once damaged, hyaline cartilage has a very limited ability to heal spontaneously. The need for a simple, well-tolerated and effective solution for cartilage repair and regeneration represents one of medicine's most challenging unmet needs. CartiHeal's flagship Agili-C implant represents a significant medical breakthrough. This implant has shown to promote regeneration of the articular cartilage and its underlying subchondral bone simultaneously, without the use of external cells, growth factors, or other exogenous agents. The cell-free implant is inserted into the joint in a single-stage, minimally-invasive procedure.
