Why HYALEX® Cartilage
Biomimetic Materials Platform
HYALEX® Cartilage is engineered to replicate the structure and function of hyaline cartilage, the strong and flexible tissue that enables the smooth and pain-free movement of your joints.
The natural hyaline cartilage found in your body is composed of two types of tissue: one for strength and one for lubrication. HYALEX® Cartilage has been designed to replicate this structure with a strength component and a water-attracting component, allowing it to match the strong and slippery properties of your body’s native cartilage better than traditional orthopaedic materials.
HYALEX® Cartilage most closely replicates the critical material properties of natural hyaline cartilage vs. traditional orthopaedic materials1.
