THE PROBLEM

Tendinopathy is an injury that has failed to heal and is one of the most common causes of pain in the world.

  • 30 million Americans have chronic tendon pain (lasting over 3 months).
  • Five commonly affected tendon areas include: jumper’s knee, tennis elbow, golf elbow, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, and other tendons.
  • 9 million Americans fail to respond to conservative treatment.
  • Approximately $1.4 billion of the market is currently unmet.

CURRENT APPROACHES

(Suboptimal for symptom reduction)

  • Conservative Treatment

  • Percutaneous Tenotomy

  • Open Surgery

HOW IT WORKS

Stimulation
Ocelot System
mechanically debrides pathological tendon and removes excess ECM to allow for a new healing cycle.

Activation 

Pro inflammatory markers (e.g macrophages, neutrophils, and cytokines) activate to start upregulation. 

Upregulation 

Proteins and growth factors (e.g. IG-F1, TGFβ, PDGF, bFGF, Interleukin) start expressing in the area.  

Healing

Tendon repairs and remodels itself to a new healthy state.
