Bioactive coating may help only in this stage, by promoting adhesion of osteoblasts to the material and enhancing ECM synthesis, leading to transient biointegration .
If favourable proteins adsorb on the surface, biointegration will proceed .
As mentioned earlier, predominantly, bioceramics are coated on surface of implant to improve biointegration.
Healionics' propriety STAR Material -- Sphere Templated Angiogenic Regenerative Material -- is specifically engineered to enhance biointegration and promote healing.
Healionics is a privately held biomaterials company whose mission is to be the leading partner of tissue regeneration and device biointegration solutions to healthcare manufacturers.
Healionics' proprietary STAR - Sphere Templated Angiogenic Regeneration - is a biomaterial scaffold specifically engineered to enhance biointegration and promote healing of implanted medical devices.
We are pleased to be working with a diverse group of partners to evaluate the synergy of STAR in a variety of applications and look forward to continuing our outreach to future partners regarding the potential STAR may offer in improving the healing, biointegration and longevity of implantable devices and materials," said Robert Brown, Chief Executive Officer of Healionics.
These clinical studies have shown positive biointegration
as well as full imaging compatibility.
