Bioventus is a orthobiologics company that develops medical products

aimed towards active healing therapies for more complete healing of bone fractures

and treatment of the chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis.


These solutions work to enhance the body’s natural healing process,

accelerate recovery and improve the patient’s quality of life.

Therapies may also reduce the need for invasive procedures, leading to more cost-effective outcomes than previously possible.

Our small office of eight in Boston has undergone clinical trails to evaluate

a unique bone morphogenic protein (BMP) in it's efficacy in spinal bone repair



Monitor the animal's nutrient levels over a

26-week period following surgical implantation of the

BMP protein-carrier structure

Examine the animal's CT scans

to characterize the newly-formed

bone's density and volume

Analyze the effect of varying

dosage concentrations on the

animal's health and bone repair





 Construct the protein's carrier

(a sponge-like rectangular mesh)

and engineer its structure for

optimal protein retention

  Perform mechanical testing to

tear apart the carrier and measure

its resulting peak stress and strain (4).gif (2).gif
