STAR Benefits

Many of the materials used in long-term, percutaneous and implanted medical devices today were initially developed for other purposes. STAR® biomaterial was specifically conceived and developed to heal in the body. With its proprietary pore geometry, STAR offers several distinct advantages in biocompatibility:

  • Improved Biointegration
  • Reduced Foreign Body Response (FBR)
  • Increased Angiogenesis
  • Tissue Regeneration with Reduced Scarring

STAR® technology’s exceptional versatility enables it to be developed and fine-tuned to fit specific product or application requirements. STAR solutions offer three key types of adaptability:

  • Substrate independence
  • Tunable pore geometry
  • Custom shapes and sizes
