Custom Soft Tissue Fixation Device Design and Manufacturing
In the sports medicine market soft tissue fixation products are often used in the repair and reconstruction of soft tissue injuries in the shoulders, knees, hips, and extremities. Soft tissue repair devices often include the use of high strength braided sutures and anchors to reattach soft tissue to bone. Soft tissue fixation devices can use either braided suture tape or round braided sutures. UHMWPE is a frequently used polymer for these braided suture tapes and braided round sutures. Suture buttons are also used in soft tissue repair. Using various methods of continuous loops and attachment sutures using UHMWPE for soft tissue repair, suture buttons are often used for ACL reconstruction.
