Episurf Medical was granted a new patent in China, titled “Design Method of a Rig”, applicable to the drill guide for the Episealer® Femoral Twin implant.
In 2Q17, the company received patents in China for its implant-specific drill bit and height adjustment drill guide; the technology has also received patent protection in the EU and in the U.S.
Episealer technology pairs an implant with a proprietary set of surgical instruments and a damage marking report for surgical pre-planning. The Femoral Twin device is a patient-specific resurfacing implant intended for large, elongated defects in the femoral condyles and trochlear area.
