Innovative Solutions

Enabling a better quality of life for humanity through innovative medtech solutions

NuTissu

What we do

We are developing a catalogue of products based on our trademarked biomaterial solution, BiomimInks.

Our proprietary materials and technology integrated with our materials are designed to help “re-boot” the body’s natural bioelectric current to promote tissue healing whilst presenting antimicrobial properties.

3D printability of our biomaterials enables us to offer bespoke solutions to address a range of diseased and damaged tissue.

Our Solution

A paradigm shift in wound care

Our Approach

Our approach to tackle wounds, informed by deep clinical insight uniquely combines three scientific and technology advancements:

Biomaterials

NuTissu’s unique portfolio of photopolymers, BiomimInks® and biomaterials-based technology present a range of properties to completely and rapidly heal wounds, that include antimicrobial defence, skin epithelialisation, and crucially, enable the delivery of electrical-stimulation therapy with digital-health technologies through everyday consumer electronics.

Bioelectricity

Externally applied electric currents in wounded/damaged tissue can mimic the endogenous currents which facilitate wound healing. Our product, E-Plaster® with bioelectric stimulation aims to mimic this natural current of injury.

Digital Health Technology

We are leveraging on IoT and digital health technologies to enable the solutions to be patient centric with the E-Plaster® App as well as enable our biomaterials to mimic optimal physiological functions with 3D printing.
