Mölndal, Sweden – May 3, 2024 — Integrum (publ) (Nasdaq First North Growth Market: INTEG B) announces today that the company has launched a short video documentary about the company’s Center of Excellence in Kyiv, Ukraine.

As a result of the Russian invasion, Ukraine’s Health Ministry estimates that there will be approximately 100,000 amputees in Ukraine at the end of 2024. Integrum’s Center of Excellence at the Center for Complex Endoprosthetics, Osseointegration and Bionics in Kyiv was established in December 2023, with the intention to spearhead orthopedic treatment using OPRA™ Implant System in individuals who have suffered limb loss. Integrum’s CEO, Dr Rickard Brånemark, visits the center regularly to perform surgeries and train surgeons.

To increase awareness of the great need for innovations to help combat amputees, Integrum has produced a short video documentary showing how the unique technology OPRATM Implant System can help restore functionality in severely injured veterans. To further increase focus on the matter, Dr Brånemark has hosted several meetings at the center during the last week with politicians, company leaders and military representatives.

Among the delegations were The Swedish Minister for Social Services, Camilla Waltersson Grönvall.  As part of the delegation’s visit, the minister met patients who have been treated with Integrum’s OPRATM Implant System and took part in discussions on the importance of leading trauma healthcare in the rebuild of Ukraine.

“Integrum aims to restore mobility to individuals who have suffered limb loss. For this reason, we are very happy and honored to have received acknowledgment from a representative of the top-most political leadership in Sweden, and the opportunity to discuss the urgent need for purpose-driven trauma healthcare. We look forward to providing further insight in our area of expertise and continue the efforts to improve health care for amputees both in Ukraine and globally,” says Rickard Brånemark, CEO of Integrum.
