SILK DERIVED MATERIAL IS IDEAL FOR MEDICAL APPLICATION
THE POWER AND PROMISE OF SILK TECHNOLOGY
People have used silk, nature’s healing fiber, for more than 5,000 years. Many of the qualities that have made silk a coveted textile for millennia also make it extraordinarily useful to physicians and surgeons. In the surgical setting, silk fiber and mesh are renowned for their flexibility, strength and biocompatibility.
Sofregen aspires to be the world leader in transforming silk biomaterial into products for medical and cosmetic soft tissue repair including breast reconstruction, wound and scar repair, and vocal cord augmentation. This market is rapidly growing with an estimated $7 billion need to address.
The needs of physicians and patients are ever-changing. At Sofregen, we are focused on exploring new technologies and developing new products such as re-engineered silk protein, offering new hope for the most sensitive and delicate conditions.
Our goal is to continually assist surgeons in restoring confidence, and improving quality of life for patients around the world.
