Regenerex® Porous Titanium Construct

Biomet Healthcare Professionals Orthopedics Regenerex® Porous Titanium Construct

Clinically Proven Material.1 Advanced Porous Technology.

Regenerex® Porous Titanium Construct unites the proven clinical history of titanium1 with an enhanced interconnecting pore structure, resulting in a revolutionary material that provides for biologic fixation.2-3

Regenerex® material provides for:

  • Average porosity of 67 percent2
  • Average pore size of 300 microns2
  • Fixation as early as two weeks in canine studies2-3
  • Compressive modulus close to that of cancellous bone2,4-5
  • High compressive strength2
