About Biomedical Structures: Medical Textiles, Biomedical Textiles for Medical Devices

Tomorrow’s most advanced medical devices are benefiting from the flexibility and performance of biomedical textiles and custom structures. In more therapeutic areas than ever, textiles are replacing and enhancing traditional rigid materials like metals in new ways. Absorbable and permanent biocompatible textiles can be engineered to provide everything from strength and flexibility to ease-of-use for surgeons and improved patient outcomes.  And now, their longevity, long-term viability, and ability to more closely match natural anatomical structures can help make the next generation of device applications possible.

Biomedical Structures (BMS) is a market leader in the advanced design, development and manufacturing of medical textiles for device manufacturers in the orthopedic, cardiovascular, general surgery, and tissue engineering and regenerative medicine markets.  With specialized expertise in innovative polymer technologies and medical-grade manufacturing techniques, BMS is the trusted partner to some of the world’s largest and most innovative device manufacturers. 

Building a Better Solution

2013 marks BMS’ merger with industry leader Modified Polymer Components (MPC), which specializes in the design, rapid prototyping, and manufacture of highly precise polymer components for medical device developers. This merger follows our 2011 acquisition of medical textile manufacturer Concordia Medical and expansion of our full line of services, which runs from concept design to complete production, supply chain management, and post-manufacturing sterilization and packaging, all at increased volume and on-demand scalability. Today, BMS and MPC provide a full spectrum of value-added services from medical textile engineering an manufacturing to production of customized plastic components for an ever-growing range of device applications.
