In 1975, we collaborated with Professor Per-Ingvar Brånemark on a project to develop osseointegration, starting the production of dental implant products for teeth replacement.
The knack for precision that got us started, now permeates everything we do. In strong collaboration with our customers, we drive progress and advance medical devices within dentistry, orthopedics and life science – helping more people every day, in more places, regain functional abilities that restore their quality of life.
By doubling the manufacturing space and investing heavily in high-tech equipment of the Memphis plant, Elos significantly increased its capacity to support customers in the global orthopedic market.
