Introduction to BRI.Screw
BRI.Screw is there to stabilise a fractured bone as long as it is needed in order to support it.
Unlike conventional implants made of titanium or stainless steel, its material dissolves naturally and is excreted by the body as soon as the bone is fully functional again.
Introduction to BRI.Mag
BRI.Mag is the patented material from which we produce our biodegradable BRI.Screw.
It is a magnesium-zinc-calcium alloy developed over the course of eight years, which marks an important milestone in materials research. Its high purity, as well as its mechanical performance and degradation characteristics, makes it uniquely suited for clinical application. We are proud to provide selected research groups with BRI.Mag.
Assoz. Prof. Dr. Weinberg is a senior physician at the University Hospital Graz. In 2001, she was the first woman in the trauma surgery department to be awarded the habilitation. Besides that, she has made a name for herself by doing pioneering research in experimental biomechanics, molecular biology, and fracture healing in children, with a focus on absorbable implants.
