HAPPE Spine Forms to Develop PEEK Interbody Implants -

HAPPE Spine has formed to develop and commercialize a material technology that allows for the construction of partial or fully porous hydroxyapatite-reinforced polyetheretherketone (PEEK) implants. The company's name derives from HydroxyApatite Porous PEEK. It was formed by Genesis Innovation Group with investments from cultivate(MD) Capital Funds I and II, and is based on research at the University of Notre Dame that began over 10 years ago. HA whisker reinforced PEEK with variable porosity can be used to create spinal interbody implants, as well as other potential applications throughout the body. HAPPE will evaluate additional device applications as part of its product strategy. (Genesis Innovation Group, 7/19/18)
