For the third consecutive year, the European project TriAnkle is once again present at the sports medicine congress Articulating Sport, organized by OAFI and held between March 8th and 10th in Madrid.
It is a multidisciplinary event aimed at professional and amateur athletes, health professionals, patients and industry, in which topics such as safe sports practice and joint health care have been addressed.
In this context, Nina Martínez, head of R+D at the OAFI Foundation, and Dr. Gil Rodas, medical director of the Barça Innovation Hub, explained to the audience gathered at the headquarters of the Spanish Olympic Committee, what the TriAnkle project consists of and how it can help patients with tendinopathies. In addition to being a regenerative medicine project, and therefore less invasive for the patient, another advantage of this treatment is that it allows the personalization of collagen implants made with 3D bioprinting technology. The reduction of recovery times is another positive factor to take into account of TriAnkle.
