Technology

PhotoBioCure™ technology is based on polymeric materials that under the influence of UV radiation turn from a sticky liquid into a flexible solids. This feature allows forming a customized polymer implants, adjusted to tissue defects, in situ in vivo. Importantly, the composition is biodegradable in the in vivo environment and eventually replaced by natural tissue.
