OGEN- Innovative Medical Technologies Inc. develops implants for low density bones (Osteoporosis).
The goal is to replace the screws that are regularly used to fixate traumatic bone fracture, screws that often fail due to bone thinness and bad holding power. OGEN developed a unique anchor that increases the grasping ability in a thin bone by 100%.
Increasing the grasping ability leads to a decrease in hardware failure when fixating bone fracture, which means less repeating surgeries and less suffering for the patients.
Dr. Behrbalk is the founder of OGEN and today acts as it's Chief Technology Officer.
