These are applied in durable, comfortable and easy-to-use products that are used in both demanding surgery applications and day-to-day patient care all over the world.
Partnerships for success
Our main R&D facility is located in Finland, but an integral part of our innovation strategy is also the continuous search for alliances and partnerships giving synergies for both parties. These extend to the whole chain, including design, key technologies and materials. Moreover, we maintain an increasing network of consultative and collaborative relationships with leading academics of various medical disciplines.
We've learnt that real rewards come through partnerships that work in the long run.
