Constantly learning and attentive to market innovations
Passion for our work
Why we do this?
Life expectancy in modern societies is ever increasing due to advancements in technology. What is still in question, is how many years we can live with a proper body function. One common disease of aging is Osteoporosis, which causes around 9 million bone fractures each year due to osteoporosis worldwide; this means an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds . In Europe, the number of fractures was reported 3.5 million in 2010 , and this number is anticipated to be 4.5 million in 2025 corresponding to an increase of 28% .
Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures affect around 1.4 million patients globally every year. In North America, the lifetime risk of clinically evident vertebral fracture is 15.6% for 50-year-old women, and this number increases with the age due to increase of osteoporosis in older people. In the USA, approximately 700,000 new osteoporotic fractures are seen every year, of which one-third become chronically painful and therefore diagnosed.
The aim of Amber Implants is to tackle these problems and play a role, even a small share, in an improvement of patients’ quality of life. To achieve this, we come up with three different methods:
Using Additive manufacturing (AM). Amber Implants uses this manufacturing technique to print the unique complex designs with titanium alloy. Click here to know more
Innovative designs for advanced capabilities. Our devices and surgical procedures are more functional and simple to increase patient safety.
Using porous titanium structure.
By mimicking the structure of the bone, the osteoinductivity of the implant is enhanced, which accelerates the recovery of the patient and guarantees the success of the surgery.
At Amber Implants, we are determined to minimize the complications of the treatment for patients with spinal disorders with our novel and revolutionary expandable porous implants.
