FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: Bone damage and diseases affects millions of people worldwide. The economical impact is extremely relevant both on the healthcare system and the social costs. None of bone grafting products currently available is able to regenerate large bone defects. Even more when load-bearing bone gaps caused by high-energy impact (both civilian and military) are considered. GreenBone value proposition include faster therapy for bone regeneration of bone large defects, non-union fractures (non-load and load-bearing bones), and spinal fusion. It is important to note that the use of Greenbone will be more cost effective than any other bone grafting solution and biologics in the market.
