medical applications under the PURASORB® brand name.
FiberLive™ is a unique composite consisting of

"This technology will be a game changer in the orthopedic
resorbable market, where load bearing properties are needed, such
as trauma and spine applications. The FiberLive™ technology is the
strongest fully resorbable material available for human implants,
with strength up to 6 times higher than cortical bone, comparable
