Founded in 2014, OSSIO began as the culmination of years of biomechanical research and a vision for the possibility of better bone healing. The technological basis of OSSIOfiber was developed and would lay the groundwork for ushering in a new breakthrough category of non-permanent fixation: “Bio-Integrative” implants that have been both the desired strength AND bio-friendliness. Implants that have the mechanical strength for easy insertion and secure fixation, while enabling the body to regrow bone, incorporating and replacing the implant (without the adverse inflammation and weakness often seen in “bio-resorbables” and other “bio-composites”), has remained elusive to the industry — until now.
