Amend Surgical Receives Funding for Suture-less Nerve Repair Device
Amend Surgical, Inc., an Alachua-based medical device company, announced today that it has been awarded a substantial product development funding from The Michigan-Pittsburgh-Wyss Regenerative Medicine (MPWRM) Resource Center to commercialize a novel, suture-less solution for the repair of peripheral nerves. Tissure is a resorbable hydrogel membrane with a chitosan-based adhesive that has the adhesion and mechanical strength to potentially replace suture for the repair of peripheral nerve injuries. Tissure is easy to apply and will greatly simplify this challenging surgical procedure. Amend Surgical exclusively licensed the rights for this technology from the Wyss Institute at Harvard University in 2020.
