The Challenge

To be able to deliver a patient’s own stem cells to the point of need, to maintain cell viability and to provide scaffold structure to facilitate cartilage repair.


The Approach

Initially built on extrusion principals, a bespoke handheld freeform fabrication platform has been developed that allows high-resolution independent control of two biomaterials extruded through a custom co-axial extrusion tip.


The Team

Clinical end-users, mechatronics engineers, materials scientists and biologists across two-states with access to state-of-the-art additive fabrication and biofabrication development hardware.


Where Are We Now

On the cusp second-stage animal trials.


Where We Are Going

Human trial that will make real therapeutic impact.
