What we do

Advancing the science and technology of ligament repair

Embody is pioneering the next generation regenerative platform for the repair of tendon and ligament injuries with novel collagen-based bio-fabrication techniques and products for the fast-growing sports medicine market. Founded in 2014, the company is developing unique biomaterials with an initial focus on orthopedic applications including Achilles, rotator cuff and knee ligament repair.

Embody's Mission

Embody’s mission is to improve quality of life for traumatic and sports injury patients by providing regenerative products that promote faster healing and restore pre-injury performance.

Advanced Approach

Utilizing a dynamic blend of established, proprietary, and innovative scientific techniques we are developing regenerative collagen-based implants that will resorb into the body, improving the outcome for the over 2 million patients annually affected by soft tissue injuries in the United States.

The Embody Team

With decades of combined leadership experience in the Medical Device business, the Embody team is a unique blend of science expertise and business acumen. We have a qualified team of scientist, engineers, and medical advisors who use their combination of biofabrication and collagen science expertise to invent advanced manufacturing methods of novel biomaterials for a differentiated product offering.
