ABOUT INTEGRUM

Integrum AB is a publicly traded company (INTEG B: Nasdaq First North exchange) based outside of Gothenburg, Sweden, with a US subsidiary, Integrum, Inc., in San Francisco, CA. Since 1990, osseointegration, the science behind the OPRA™ Implant System, has been helping individuals with amputations enjoy a dramatically improved quality of life.

Decades of scientific research and development within the field of osseointegration led to development of the OPRA™ Implant System for bone-anchored prostheses. This unique approach, utilizing implants of titanium alloy and the scientifically well-documented and peer-reviewed principle of osseointegration, offers significant advantages for the patient compared to traditional socket prostheses. Among these advantages are the ability to once again feel the ground beneath your feet, avoid the pain and discomfort of a chiding socket, and wear the prosthesis 24 hours.

Since its inception as a company in 1998, Integrum AB has been the world leader in this area, and patients are being treated in state-of-the-art clinical facilities spread across the globe. The OPRA™ Implant System has been in use since the first treatment in 1990, and today more than 500 patients are enjoying the benefits of an osseointegrated prosthesis replacing an arm, a leg, or a digit.

Integrum AB is dedicated to continuous research, and collaborates with well renowned scientists and clinicians in order to develop its technological solutions and treatment modalities. This to even further improve the patient benefits enjoyed through treatment with the OPRA™ Implant System.

Currently, there is a significant medical need for better treatment options and alternatives for amputees. In the US alone there are over 2 million amputees and  185,000 additional amputations are performed each year. The conventionally used socket prosthesis can cause pain, skin irritation, lack of limb control, and limited mobility. This unfortunately results in many amputees choosing not to wear a prosthesis; which severely impacts their ability to pursue an active lifestyle and to live their lives as fully as they desire.

The OPRA™ Implant System received PMA approval in 2020 and is the only system to be approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
