Sharing the Experience of Biotech Success
2020 Taiwan BIO Awards Recipients:
"Tripod-Fix," the first mechanical vertebral body (VB) augmentation system for vertebral compression fractures (VCFs), is developed from conceptualization to commercialization in Taiwan. With a triangular pyramid design, it can accurately restore the height of fractured VB and further stabilize VB with cement. Because of its structure and clinical outcomes, Tripod-Fix is an effective and low-risk restoration product for patients with VCFs allowing a fast and sustained improvement in quality of life.
