Amend Surgical Receives Funding for Suture-less Nerve Repair Device

Amend Surgical, Inc., a UF Innovate | Accelerate client, has been awarded substantial product development funding from The Michigan-Pittsburgh-Wyss Regenerative Medicine (MPWRM) Resource Center to commercialize a novel, suture-less solution for the repair of peripheral nerves. Tissure is a resorbable hydrogel membrane with a chitosan-based adhesive that has the adhesion and mechanical strength to potentially replace sutures for the repair of peripheral nerve injuries.
