Diamond Orthopedic's faceted bone screw technology was successfully used in an intercalary tibial allograft.
The patented faceted design is intended to support screw insertion with less torque and lower compressive stress—particularly critical in cases of osteopenic bone. Further, the faceted design is reported to yield a better bone/screw interface than traditional helical forms.
In 4Q17, the company closed a US $3.5MM seed round of equity funding.
