Neoss to offer frameworks and bars exclusively from Osteon Medical

Partnerships and collaborations

Neoss Australia Pty Ltd has entered into an exclusive collaboration agreement with Osteon Medical Pty Ltd to provide its customers with custom patient specific implant bars, frameworks and superstructures for the entire range of Neoss implants.


"This synergy with Osteon Medical further strengthens our position in the CAD/CAM market at a time when demand is increasing exponentially," said John Divitini, Managing Director of Neoss Australia. "In addition, the combination of Osteon Medical's prosthetic range of products together with our comprehensive range of implants will provide our clients with cutting edge solutions, backed by our quality customer care throughout Australia and New Zealand."

Rather than requiring laboratories to purchase a scanner to utilize the milling centre as has been the norm with many CAD/CAM systems, Osteon Medical's operational model invites laboratories to physically send cases to the company for in-house scanning and design. Once the design is completed, it is emailed to the technician to review prior to manufacturing.

"The scanning and manufacturing process must be tightly controlled in order to produce high quality, passively fitting structures in multi-unit cases," said Michael Tuckman, CEO of Osteon Medical.

"Hence it is far easier for all parties concerned if we look after both the scanning and milling at our facility in Melbourne.

"In addition, we can easily 'copy mill' a framework/bar should the technician prefer the option of designing the case in their laboratory.

"It also means that any laboratory can easily send us a case and the model will be returned with the milled structure in place, without a substantial up-front investment," Mr Tuckman said.

"Feedback from our customers in relation to the quality, cost and the turnaround time has been extremely positive and we expect this partnership to result in greater customer satisfaction and significantly increase our prosthetic division market share," Mr Divitini said.

With its manufacturing facility on the grounds of its research partner, Swinburne University in Melbourne, Osteon Medical manufactures custom-made precision milled bars, frameworks and superstructures for a range of implant platforms under the Optimus brand in titanium, CoCr, PMMA and Plasti-Wax to the highest standards and backed by a 10-year product replacement warranty.

The Optimus product range includes fixed hybrid bars, wrap around bars, Melbourne bars and copy milling from a resin pattern in a variety of materials. Titanium Fixed/Removable solutions include combination, primary, Nexus, Hader and Dolder bars (both egg-shaped and U-shaped). Nexus, primary and combination superstructures are also available in titanium, CoCr, tooth-coloured PMMA and Plasti-wax.
