Biorez has pioneered the BioBrace implant, a breakthrough material featuring a highly porous collagen sponge reinforced with bioresorbable microfilaments. The BioBrace implant is intended to augment and reinforce a wide range of tendon and ligament procedures, including rotator cuff repair and ACL reconstruction.
"Our vision is to help patients return to normal activity sooner and safer," said Kevin Rocco, president and CEO of Biorez. "BioBrace has the potential to create a new category of implant materials known as 'biocomposites' that contain both biologic and synthetic materials. This rationally-designed approach creates an opportunity for more durable surgical repairs and faster healing, which we intend to prove clinically."
Concurrent with this financing, Biorez is also announcing the release of a new company website that provides additional information about its BioBrace technology.
Biorez is a New Haven, Conn.-based medical device startup focused on advancing tendon and ligament repair using its proprietary BioBrace technology. Biorez's products are in the development stage and have not been approved for use by any regulatory agency including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
