Key Characteristics & Benefits

This patent discloses the following:

  • An advanced hip implant that facilitates fast tissue growth using electrical stimulation. This mitigates the risk of degeneration and necrosis.
  • The free end of the shaft of a standard hip cap encapsulates a pick-up coil, electrically coupled with the inner wall of the shaft, collectively forming an electrode.
  • A low frequency alternating current is induced in the pick-up coil to stimulate tissue growth and maintain the vitality of the bone covered by the cap.
  • By promoting angiogenesis and intensive revascularization of the femur neck, electromagnetic osteosti repeated stimulation "on demand" is possible over the lifetime of the implantmulation which restores the vitality of existing bone stock, and prolongs the life of the implant.
  • Repeated stimulation "on demand" is possible over the lifetime of the implant.
  • In the case of hip resurfacing, the active device stimulates the bone under the cap and extends the effective life of the prosthesis before replacement needs to be considered.
  • This device actively addresses a potential problem with hip resurfacing – the inherent risk of necrosis of the head of the femur.
  • Several CE certified products using this Magnetodyn technology are in clinical use.

Market Potential

This lot should be of interest to prosthetic device manufacturers, healthcare service providers, and entities manufacturing biomaterials and orthopedic surgery devices. The buyer will acquire a world-wide monopolistic position in the application of the technology in the field of hip resurfacing

  • Growing at an 8% CAGR, the global hip and knee implants market is forecasted to reach $21.7 billion by 2016, of this, the hip implant market is expected to be worth $8.7 billion.(1)
