Miach Orthopaedics struck a deal with Veteran’s Health Medical Supply to distribute the Bridge-Enhanced ACL Restoration implant across the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs, the devicemaker said March 7.
The Bear implant is a bridge that restores a patient's ACL using blood. The implant launched in 2021 and has been used in more than 700 procedures. The distribution agreement will help make it more accessible to surgeons and patients with the VA and DOD, according to a news release.
"We are excited to partner with VHMS to facilitate access to the BEAR Implant for active and retired military personnel served by Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs facilities," Patrick McBrayer, president and CEO of Miach Orthopaedics, said in the release.
