Actifit has significant potential to improve joint health and delay the need for joint replacement. Actifit is CE marked. Actifit is not currently available in the United States.
Every year there are more than 1,500,000 meniscectomies and 630,000 total knee replacements performed in the US and Europe. Partial meniscectomy outcomes can be drastically improved by using Actifit to fill the defect, especially if you are experiencing knee symptoms following a prior meniscus surgery. Our goals are to delay or prevent total knee replacement by saving the meniscus.
At Orteq, we create unique joint preservation solutions for orthopaedic/sports medicine surgeons that encourage a patient’s own natural healing process. Our products offer an innovative regenerative medicine approach to soft tissue defects in joints for patients suffering from injury or degeneration.
