Surgical Mesh

Pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence, affect approximately 41% of women aged 50 to 79 (~4.4 million globally).

This project aims to develop flexible and visible surgical mesh to be used for the people who require surgical mesh – especially women – by increasing their independence, improving quality of life/well-being and avoidance of unnecessary surgery.

Additionally, this technology could be adapted to a variety of biocompatible polymers currently used in medical technology, offering broad applications across a wide range of biomedical devices for implantation.
