Biomedical Bonding AB (BMB) is a Swedish MedTech company that develops cutting-edge adhesives, composites and novel surgical methodologies with focus on the ever-growing market of hard tissue repair.
BMB wants to overcome the current pain points in today’s bone fracture surgery and dental restorations by introducing a unique technology platform based on a novel category of adhesive resin-composites with focus on biocompatibility, tissue-friendliness and high mechanical strength.
In 2006, an interdisciplinary collaboration was established between KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska University Hospital (KUH) based on the existing need for alternative methods to metal implants. KTH and KUH were committed to overcome the challenges and to set forward a new era of materials innovation.
The initial research provided a first adhesive bone fixating patch (FRAP) as an alternative to metal implants for fracture treatments. The findings were secured in a patent application and inserted in Repair Technology Sweden AB (now BMB) as the platform to ensure future exploitation.
Prof. Malkoch at KTH and founder of BMB has been funded by the KAW-foundation, Vinnova and EU Horizon 2020 to continue the development together with e.g. Karolinska Institute, RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden), AO Research Institute Davos as well as surgeons from Stockholm South General Hospital (SÖS) and Hvidovre Hospital to reach the threshold for commercialization.
Since 2017, BMB has worked towards making the technology available for clinical use and is now ready to commercialize products with the ambition to improve treatments and enhance patient’s life quality.
