GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Oct. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — HAPPE Backbone publicizes the addition of two extra issued patents in a rising portfolio establishing HAPPE because the chief of subsequent era orthopaedic and spinal implants enabled by the HAPPE™ (HydroxyApatite Porous PolyEtheretherketone) platform. The HAPPE materials platform gives interconnected, cancellous porosity and bioactive surfaces with uncovered hydroxyapatite to allow sturdy bone in-growth and on-growth confirmed in preclinical testing.
Dr. Ryan Ok. Roeder, Founder and CTO, stated, “We’re happy the USPTO has granted utility patents for our implant design and manufacturing course of that construct upon beforehand issued and pending utility patents for our materials composition. Collectively, these patents set up a powerful mental property place for HAPPE within the rising marketplace for porous HA PEEK units.”
U.S. Patent Quantity 11,179,243 protects implantable units comparable to interbody spinal fusion cages which can be constructed with (1) a thermoplastic polymer comparable to polyetheretherketone, (2) a minimum of one area with interconnected porosity, and (3) bioactive particles comparable to hydroxyapatite built-in within the polymer and uncovered on pore surfaces to encourage bone ingrowth.
U.S. Patent Quantity 11,426,904 protects a course of for forming implants from thermoplastic polymers with areas of differing porosity. Not like additive manufacturing of PEEK implants, the method permits molding of monolithic implants from powder-based uncooked supplies such that there aren’t any seams, joints or bonds within the implant, however somewhat a steady polymer matrix between areas of comparatively porous and dense materials.
About HAPPE Backbone:
HAPPE Backbone LLC is a medical system growth firm that designs and commercializes progressive spinal implants using the patented HydroxyApatite Porous PolyEtheretherketone (HAPPE™) materials platform. HAPPE transforms polyetheretherketone from a hydrophobic, bioinert, and non-integrating materials right into a hydrophilic, bioactive, and osteointegrating materials, confirmed by sturdy bone in-growth and on-growth in preclinical testing. The HAPPE INTEGRATE™ interbody fusion system is the primary interbody fusion cage to supply bone-like cancellous porosity with bioactive surfaces by way of your entire implant peak to advertise endplate-to-endplate osteointegration. INTEGRATE is designed to advertise each load bearing and therapeutic, in addition to superior post-operative imaging. The HAPPE INTEGRATE interbody fusion system thus gives allograft-like qualities in an artificial implant that may enhance scientific outcomes in interbody spinal fusion by overcoming the issues of pseudoarthrosis, subsidence and imaging artifacts that restrict present PEEK and titanium implants.
