Rotation Medical has developed, patented and commercialized a novel, FDA-cleared rotator cuff system that has the potential to transform the treatment of rotator cuff disease. The system includes a bioinductive implant and a set of disposable arthroscopic instruments. In clinical studies the bioinductive implant has been shown to heal tendons by inducing the growth of new tendon-like tissue.
Our bioinductive implant, derived from bovine Achilles tendon is reconstituted to achieve very high porosity and purity and a low modulus. It is designed to rapidly induce the formation and functional remodeling of new tendon-like tissue on the bursal surface of the supraspinatus tendon. The new tissue will biologically augment the rotator cuff to reduce the peak strain at the site of the tear and create an environment conducive for healing. The Rotation Medical bioinductive implant gradually absorbs within six months, leaving a layer of new tendon-like tissue to biologically augment the existing tendon.
