FibroFix™ Cartilage has been designed to treat serious injuries to the smooth, resilient, articular cartilage which covers and protects the ends of bones allowing our joints to articulate smoothly. With its demanding mechanical function, cartilage is frequently damaged, and with a poor capacity to heal by itself, cartilage defects often deepen leading to the onset of osteoarthritis and exposure of the underlying bone. This intensifies the abrasion, inflammation and pain and ultimately major joint replacement surgery may be required. Orthox aims to transform the way in which cartilage injuries are treated, repairing damage before it spreads and restoring cartilage function. With our lead focus on the most frequently injured joint, the knee, Orthox’s ambition is to develop FibroFix™ implants for all the major joints in the body.
