History of Actifit®
Actifit® was developed over the last twenty years in conjunction with some of the world’s leading polymer scientists and orthopedic sports/medicine surgeons. Made from our unique polymer, Actifit® is the first biodegradable, synthetic scaffold, designed to help repair meniscal tears. It has shown at two years post surgery to reduce patient pain levels and return patients to pre injury activity levels.
