BioPoly Granted Two New US Patents

By Julie A. Vetalice

BioPoly was granted two additional U.S. patents addressing its material, orthopaedic devices and methods of implantation. This brings the company's patent portfolio to 12 for this subject matter, to date.

BioPoly® material behaves like a synthetic, self-lubricating cartilage which may be used to replace only the damaged portion of joints vs. total joint repair. BioPoly implants for the knee, patella and shoulder have been used clinically in Europe for 5+ years.
