Bioresorbable materials, which dissolve and are absorbed into the body, represent the cutting edge in medical device performance. From load-bearing applications to drug delivery, bioresorbables give healthcare providers options beyond traditional implantable or biocompatible materials and allow for customization to meet the needs of nearly any patient.

Understanding possible bioresorbable material formulations and how they excel in particular applications — as well as dispelling misconceptions surrounding the use of injection-molded bioresorbable products because of costly and inconsistent parts produced using improper practices — allows device manufacturers to take full advantage of the utility offered by such materials. Equally vital is identifying a molding partner experienced with bioresorbable materials, who can work with a manufacturer to develop a process that minimizes waste and delivers consistently high product quality.
