Better Braided Suture

Project Description

The Better Braided Suture takes all of the qualities of a normal suture found on the market today used for orthopedic repair and enhances it. What we are doing is simple; we are taking typical suture material and braiding it into a triple helix. Sutures on the market today are twisted together like a rope and not braided. What we have done is create our own tool to be used that creates the braided suture for us to ensure reproducability and limits human error. The braid produced by this device will be much stronger for orthopedic applications.
