CEO Tendon Repair System Venture

We are building a venture around a solution for faster, less traumatic retrieval and repair of
severed tendons and ligaments.
Are you the driven entrepreneur who will lead this venture as the CEO?

The invention
The new tendon repair system consists of two inventions that can be used separately or in
combination. The first part of the system is used to retrieve retracted tendon ends using a tubular,
endoscopic instrument. The second part of the system is an implant that ensures a more even
distribution of stress compared to the current gold standard suturing technique.

supported by NLC The European Healthtech Venture Builder and partnering with the inventor and other
