Science

Our Technology

Repair. Regenerate. Restore.

Despite great progress of mechanical repairs in soft tissue procedures, healing rates remain variable driving the need for biologic enhancement. The historical challenge of creating biologic augmentation has been balancing biological enhancement and structural performance. Leveraging additive manufacturing platforms, such as electrospinning and microfluidic extrusion, has allowed Embody to address prior limitations. Embody’s collagen-based biologic products are designed to optimize both structure and chemistry creating an ideal microenvironment for healing.

Technology Platforms

BIOSPIN

Microfibrous biofabrication technology for soft tissue augmentation with biomechanical performance

BIOSPIN, a hybrid electrospun / pneumatospun technology for highly organized, highly porous collagen-based microfibrous devices designed for soft tissue augmentation. The BIOSPIN platform technology is used in our TAPESTRY® Biointegrative Implant for tendon and ligament augmentation.

FABRITEC

Microfluidic biofabrication technology based on precisely controlled molecular assembly of collagen microfibers

FABRITEC, a high-output microfluidic wet-extruded biofabrication technology for clinical-grade collagen manufactured from the molecular- through product-scale, combined with a proprietary natural crosslinking chemistry, to produce high-strength pure collagen microfibers. The microfibers generated can be further manufactured into biological textiles, as found in our ACTIVBRAID products*.

Our PRODUCTS
