Intra-articular therapy for arthroses:

Platelet-Rich-Plasma Therapy (PRP)

The principle: Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) Therapy for activating body’s own healing powers

PRP (platelet-rich or thrombocyte-rich plasma) is a modern therapy approach for strengthening autologous cell regeneration and activating the body's own growth factors, cytokines and stem cells.

PRP is obtained easily and safely by centrifugation from patient’s whole blood. Thrombocytes contain a large amount of different growth factors and cytokines, which in turn have regenerating effects on the tissue. Injections of PRP into the affected tissue stimulate cell production, angiogenesis and formation of connective tissue. Also, proliferation of stem cells, fibroblasts and mononuclear leucocytes is induced. The autogenous treatment has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing accelerating effects, is versatile and can be used in orthopedics (osteoarthritis, bone regeneration), sports medicine (tendinopathies, fractures, tissue repair) and aesthetic medicine (skin rejuvenation, hair loss). The whole procedure takes no longer than 20 minutes. There are no risks or side effects for the patient.

PRP therapy can be combined with interstitial and intra-articular laser therapy very successfully. Due to the regenerative cellular effects of laser light treatment outcomes can be improved significantly.

Application:

  • PRP extraction and injection into the affected joint or inflammated area
  • Recommendation: Use of special sterile PRP kits for guaranteed application of sufficient numbers of thrombocytes

Advantages of PRP therapy:

  • Boosts local healing and tissue (re)growth
  • Natural procedure with patient’s own blood: no side effects or toxicities
  • Individual therapy
  • Easy handling, procedure doesn’t take longer than 20 min.
  • Supports the body’s own potency of healing
  • Cartilage protection and anti-inflammatory effects
  • Prevention or delay of surgery
  • Improvement in quality of life
  • Cost efficiency (no other substances necessary)
  • Can be combined with other methods such as laser therapy

1 Double connectorThe most innovative comprehensive PRP kit you can find on the market

Guaranteed application of thrombocytes which themselves contain cytokines and growth factors (in contrast to many other PRP sets with a 0,2μ filter).

Clear separation of plasma from remaining blood components due to a special gel application. Platelet-poor plasma is removed in an additional step.

Tubes have a special coating so that thrombocytes are not clinging to the walls of the tube.

Our PRP Kits can also be combined with other centrifuges.
Highest quality and technologic standards.
