Improving devices for better patient care

Today, DSM's biomaterials are being used in medical devices ranging from super-strong sutures to artificial hearts; in innovative drug delivery systems; and in coatings that make instruments easier to implant. Tomorrow our sights are set on life-changing new treatments like regenerative medicine. More than ever, DSM is helping medical device manufacturers provide better, safer products to improve patient care.

澳客网比分直播手机版 www.2v4ox.com.cn As a species, we’re living longer. But like any sophisticated equipment, the human body wears out – and parts need to be repaired or replaced. This need is expected to grow significantly in coming years due to an aging population; overuse, with more people leading active lives; or underuse, as poor diet and an obesity epidemic lead to various health problems.

DSM is becoming the 'go to' partner for medical device and biopharmaceutical manufacturers to help create smarter solutions. Our proven biomaterials are being used in a multitude of ways to improve the health, comfort and mobility of patients with a variety of health disorders.

Biomedical materials

Our strength in biomedical materials comes from a unique convergence between our expertise in materials science (especially polymers) and life sciences. The result is biomedical products that are capable of interacting with the body safely over a longer period of time. Our polyurethane materials have proven to be exceptionally durable, extending the life of implants. They also feature proven biocompatibility and biostability, assuring their safe use over time inside the human body.

Our Dyneema Purity? fiber brand, for example, is the world’s strongest fiber. Its low profile, softness and abrasion resistance make it ideal for use in intricate and minimally invasive surgeries. Our polymeric biomaterials are being used in everything from pacemakers to shoulder, hip and knee joints, from contact lenses to neurostimulation leads. They’ve also proved beneficial for more delicate and intricate body parts like the brain, cardiac vessels, lumbar discs and vertebrae.

For patients, the benefits are clear. Surgeries and treatments are now faster and more comfortable. And with less invasive procedures, recovery time is also shorter.

Drug delivery technology

The search for better, safer therapies with improved efficacy never stops. Which is why DSM is now developing resorbable materials that our customer use to make implantable local drug delivery systems. Systems made with these materials can deliver precise dosages of medication, over time, to a specific target in the body for improved therapies such as pain management and the treatment of acute and chronic illness.

Hydrophilic coatings

Increasingly, our polymer-based coatings are being used to coat catheters, guidewires and other surgical instruments. Excellent lubricity makes these devices easier to insert and maneuver inside the body. We also provide coatings with antimicrobial, non-biofouling, and/or hemocompatible properties to meet specific needs for patients and clinicians alike.

Additional medical applications

Our advanced Somos? resins are now driving a whole new approach to medical device design and processing: Stereolithography. Using this prototyping technology we can produce a functional medical device prototype for surgical devices in days rather than months. It’s one more way DSM is committed to providing innovative solutions – and making a material difference in people’s lives.
