CARTIMAX®

RESHAPING THE FUTURE OF CARTILAGE REPAIR

Introducing CartiMax, the next advancement in viable cartilage allograffs for the knee, foot and ankle.

What's CartiMax?

CartiMax is a ready-to-use, off-the-shelf viable cartilage allograft that can fill cartilage defects up to a 5cm2 lesion.

This advanced graft is versatile and conformable, to fill spaces without the need for surgeons to use templates or anchors.

How is CartiMax better than other cartilage treatment options?

CartiMax combines the clinical benefits of live, viable cartilage cells with optimal putty-like handling properties that are designed to easily fill defects of different shapes and sizes—flexibility and versatility that other allograft products just don't have.

What does this mean for surgeons?

CartiMax offers surgeons these advantages:

Viable Chondrocytes — Provides functioning, viable chondrocytes and an extracellular matrix that contains the necessary building blocks for cartilage repair such as type II collagen, proteoglycans, and endogenous growth factors.

Extended Shelf Life — Demonstrates stable viability up to one-year post-cryopreservation.

High Volume of Material Provides enough materials to fill a 5cm2 lesion, while other products may require multiple packages to treat the same volume.

Fewer Steps — Requires fewer steps and saves valuable time over comparable products, which may require measuring, using a foil template, shaping, trimming, and suturing.
