About Vivolta

Vivolta is a Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) that supports her MedTech clients with the development and manufacturing of innovative fiber-based implants or –components.  These activities are not possible without our highly skilled engineering department;

Drawing on 15 years of experience, Vivolta has broken new ground in the future of medicine. We have the ambition to professionalize the production of biodegradable implants by developing the MediSpinplatform, the world’s first automated mass production platform for medical electrospinning. Knowledge sharing, commitment, and a strong team spirit, all combined in a shared vision and mission are crucial for success. To realize our ambition in the coming years, Vivolta is currently growing from the current 20 employees to almost double in the run-up of 2024 and beyond.

 

 

What is medical electrospinning?

The goal of electrospinning is to create structures of polymer fibers from nano- to micrometers in diameter. The polymer is spun from a solvent into a long fiber by means of a high voltage field. The structures created are used for innovative medical applications such as stents, artificial veins and heart valves, but also applications for wound healing, targeted drug delivery and regenerative medicine. A special feature of electrospun fibers is the imitation of the natural environment of cells, which minimizes rejection phenomena and scar tissue formation. These implants also have the special property of allowing the human body to repair itself, because the biodegradable implant is replaced by the body’s own cells.
