ProTip SAS Company Profile


3/27/2009 11:23:06 AM

ProTip SAS designs, develops and markets medical prostheses and implants using porous titanium with a special focus on ear, nose and throat applications. The company has unique, world-class expertise in manufacturing complex form factors based on medical grade titanium microspheres. This means it can produce an infinite number of variants in final form, porosity and even composition. The biomaterial thus obtained enables permanent implantation even in a septic environment. ProTip manufactures the prostheses using an innovative procedure patented by the company, which obviates the need for an expensive mold.

Among ProTip's ear, nose and throat activities, the company is designing an artificial larynx. The results of work conducted by the ProTip team have already validated the biocompatibility and cell colonization of its porous titanium. ProTip has recently brought to market a thyroplasty prosthesis for use in laryngeal surgery, and a phonatory implant is in its final design phase.

ProTip, based in Strasbourg, in Eastern France, was founded in 2004 and has since benefited from strong support from the Alsace region and Oseo, a French government innovation agency. The company has won several prestigious awards in France. It has established partnerships with a number of academic establishments and has recently strengthened its ties with the University Hospitals of Strasbourg and with Inserm. A team of experienced managers is in place with the objective of accelerating company development.
