Biomimedica is a medical device company that is pioneering new approaches to joint repair through its proprietary, synthetic cartilage technology. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease of articular cartilage that affects nearly 27 million Americans. Articular cartilage serves as the bearing surface for all moving joints in the human body. OA patients experience increasingly frequent and progressively more severe pain upon weight bearing and upon movement that can severely restrict activity and reduce quality of life. Biomimedica is developing earlier intervention solutions to treat osteoarthritis that will allow patients to maintain a pain-free, active lifestyle.
