Partnership Targets Orthopedic Meshes and Scaffolds

DSM Dyneema (Urmond, Netherlands) has announced that it is forming a partnership with Proxy Biomedical (Cleveland). The alliance encourages further research and production of ExtreMESH, a durable surgical mesh made from DSM's Dyneema Purity polyethylene fiber technology.
"With new access to Proxy Biomedical's proven expertise in high-performance materials research, development, and manufacturing, our ability to help those needing tissue repair or regeneration is expanding," remarks Carina Snijder, business manager for DSM's Dyneema Purity fiber. "We are always excited when we get the chance to provide Dyneema Purity fiber for new uses."
"Proxy Biomedical is very pleased to be aligned with DSM Dyneema and to be able to offer ExtreMESH," says Peter Gingras, managing director of Proxy Biomedical Ltd. "We believe that our partnership will allow the development of new biomedical meshes and scaffolds, where the demand for high strength, fatigue, and abrasion resistance and low elongation is paralleled by the availability of virtual unlimited flexibility in mesh pore size, fiber diameter, and weight."
