Askel Healthcare produces biodegradable implants to heal joint cartilage damage

Joint cartilage damage is a significant medical condition in human and animal orthopedics, and has long lacked a curative therapy. As the damaged cartilage is not able to regenerate itself, it will progress over time to degenerative arthritis, eventually requiring joint replacement surgery. Askel Healthcare has developed an implant that heals joint surface damage and prevents osteoarthritis.
