UAT Group Subsidiary, Ossifix Orthopedics Begins Comparative Study
Tampa, FL, Jan. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: UATG) (UAT Group) announce today that its subsidiary, Ossifix Orthopedics has begun a comparative study with doctors across six different sites. The study will compare previously available traditional methods and materials versus The Ossifix Javelin allograft bone pin system.Â
Initial patients demonstrated early ambulation with patients driving the next day leading to patients being medically released an estimated 50% faster. The Javelin pin has shown to fully incorporate and become part of the existing bone without ossification.Â Patients were released around the 4-week mark versus 8-10 weeks typically need with traditional materials and processes.
Constructed of select, high-density, allograft, cortical bone, the proprietary design of the Ossifix Orthopedics Javelin pin ensures rigid fixation without pin slip or pirouetting. Ossifix will continue to build and expand upon this initial success by expanding to additional surgical centers.
Ossifix CEO, Mark Estrada, stated: â€œWe are currently in the process of compiling and analyzing outcome data from surgical procedures done during the latter part of 2022. We will continue gathering data for the next few months and are expecting to compile data on approximately 120 patients in total. The study will report those outcomes from approximately 12 surgeons and compare the Javelin to competitive metallic product outcomes.â€
Ossifix engineers and manufactures 100% allograft bone implants for small bone, extremities, and sports medicine markets, but have applications in the craniofacial, spine and oral surgery procedures. Resorbable implant technology is readily accepted and used in todayâ€™s market, both domestically and globally. No regulatory approval is required for implantable fixation engineered from allograft bone. As a result, barriers to entry into the market for Ossifix Technologies implants are minimal.
Ossifixsâ€™ unique manufacturing process and patent pending designs yield an engineered cortical bone implant that provides secure fixation and virtually eliminates any allergic or autoimmune reactions associated with metal or plastic/polymer implants. All Ossifix Orthopedics Pin, Screw and Plate Systems are single-use surgical kits with all necessary instruments for implantation and are based on decades of clinical experience and use in the operating room.Â Our instrumentation is constructed of an eco-friendly, bio-degradable polymer.
Ossifix products are designed to be used in hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and specialty clinics. Distribution is scheduled throughout North America, and globally in Latin America, Europe, Asia Paciï¬c, as well as the Middle East and Africa. This global market is currently experiencing an estimated growth of 14% per year and is expected to reach $4.696 billion in sales this year.
Umbra Applied Technologies Group Chief Executive Officer, Alex Umbra, commented, "Now that the holidays are behind us, the Ossifix team has begun ramping up their sales and scheduled surgeries. I am encouraged with the progress they have made and look forward to the results of the comparative studyâ€.
Ossifix Orthopedics will continue to meet with hospital systems, surgical centers and orthopedic surgeons across the U.S. with international sales slated to begin later this year.
