-Funds to Support Commercial Launch and Post-Market Clinical Studies
of Rotator Cuff System with Bioinductive Implant for Treating Rotator
Cuff Disease -
“Rotation Medical’s technology has the potential to significantly advance current approaches to the treatment of rotator cuff disease – an area for which there is clearly an unmet clinical need,” noted Dr.
Rotator cuff damage is the most common source of shoulder pain, affecting more than four million people annually in the U.S. Current approaches to repair procedures often do not address poor quality of the underlying tendon tissue, and a large number of repaired tendons deteriorate over time and become prone to re-tears. The Rotation Medical bioinductive implant is designed to address this limitation by inducing new tissue growth at the site of implantation, resulting in increased tendon thickness and healing of tendon defects with new tissue growth. The Rotation Medical rotator cuff system is comprised of a proprietary bioinductive implant and disposable instruments that allow for both mini-open and arthroscopic procedures. The company expects to launch the technology in the U.S. later this month.
“The support of this highly experienced investor base validates the significant opportunity to advance care of patients suffering from rotator cuff disease with the Rotation Medical technology,” said
