Medical Devices & Equipment

At Vantus, a Smart Design Platform™ business, we aim to meet the unmet needs of orthopaedic patients and OR surgeons by creating personalized medical devices. Since 2003, clinical SMEs have helped to formulate Personalized Orthopaedic Solutions™.

We are Vantus Medical Systems, Inc. (VMS), a new benefit corporation, in business to lead the personalization of medical devices. VMS takes personalized medicine to a new level by focusing on the unmet restorative health needs of target orthopedic patients. VMS will design personalized orthopedic devices for 3D printing using FDA-approved materials, validating our designs with 3D modeling and full-body motion simulation. Our focus is creating Class III implants for articulating joint reconstruction/replacement and fracture repair devices. With our Vantus Digital Manufacturing System (VDMS), we can imagine, produce, and ensure the shipping of sterile devices ready for a patient’s specific body and lifestyle in 48 hours. The VDMS is a patented, disruptive technology platform that will allow Vantus to satisfy the emerging consumer market: 'personalized medicine'. Our second product family is Personalized Surgical Solutions. Today, surgeons use standardized, mass-produced instruments to perform surgeries. Just as no two patients are alike, the hands and fingers, range-of-motion, and strength of a surgeon vary one to the next. To address individual surgeons’ unmet needs, our product family will enable us to personalize instruments for each target surgeon using 3D imaging, modeling and printing. Results of initial research demonstrate surgeons’ acceptability of Personalized Surgical Solutions. Along with plans for the advanced manufacture of patient-user and surgeon-user devices, Vantus is exploring the needs of the high-value animal market in the US and abroad. Vantus presents an excellent opportunity for the right investor. We are pre-revenue and ready to commercialize our VDMS technology platform. The State of WI and US Congress have funded Vantus. Please request the attached documents for more information about our strategy, company, investment opportunity and view our 2017 Top 50 Innovators Award video by Dr. Tammy Martin. We look forward to partnering with you.

Reconstruction Devices

Reconstruction Devices: Personalized Orthopaedic Solutions™ include total articulating joint replacement and articulating joint resurfacing solutions. Reconstruction devices are used to replace or resurface biological articulating joints worn or damaged due to a disease such as osteoarthritis or trauma such as vehicle accidents or war combat injuries. Other bone-related diseases such as osteosarcomas and osteoporosis can create a need for orthopedic interventions requiring a Personalized Orthopaedic Solutions™.

Fracture Repair Devices

Fracture Repair Devices: Personalized Orthopaedic Solutions™ include fracture repair devices both (a) the primary device, and (b) secondary devices such as screws, nails, and pins. These primary and secondary devices are necessary to position, align, and support a fractured bone so that a patient can begin to heal and quickly regain functioning. Fracture repair devices are used in cases of trauma such as falls (Think, Aaron Rogers, QB of the Green Bay Packers, and the elderly who trip on throw rugs and break wrists, hips and long bones) or vehicle accidents. Personalized Orthopaedic Solutions™ fracture repair devices are also used to counteract porous bone density (bone weakening) caused by osteoporosis or the natural aging process.

Surgical Instrumentation

VMS plans to create parametric designs for the validation and advanced manufacture of hand-held surgical instrumentation as part of its Personalized Surgical Solutions product portfolio. By employing the VDMS approach to enable the anatomic and kinematics modeling of a target surgeon, these instruments will be designed to perfectly match the doctor’s anatomic characteristics, dexterity and technique.
