Meshworks has been formed to create bespoke implants which perfectly fit their intended patient.

The company has scientific roots in Oxford and Imperial, and consists of orthopaedic design engineers, additive manufacturing specialists, software engineers, and metallurgists. This multidisciplinary team has been guided by leading surgeons throughout all aspects of its research and development, to create an exceptional implant and straight-forward surgeon design experience.

Meshworks is part of the Alloyed group of companies. Alloyed is an advanced materials and 3D-printing company based in Oxford.
There is a strong clinical precedent for titanium implant scaffolds in bone reconstruction surgeries, and they typically give excellent clinical outcomes. But for patients with complex bone conditions such as large bone or significant displacement, it can be difficult for surgeons to prescribe a standard, off-the-shelf implants of the ideal size and shape for the defect. While some solutions exist for surgeons to customise existing implants, the design process can be daunting, and procurement can be prohibitively slow or expensive. Consequently, custom implants are often not considered even in cases where they could offer significant benefit.

Meshworks’ design and production platform has been designed in close collaboration with surgeons to create an intuitive design process which can be used to plan the most complex cases. By combining advanced design tools with rapid, state-of-the-art manufacturing, Meshworks aims to reduce patient readmission and improve quality of life for patients with a broad range of bone conditions.
After an implant is prescribed, surgeons meet with our engineers to design the best implant for the patient on our online design platform. Simulations are run to ensure that each implant will perform well in the clinic. Both our design platform and validation software are certified to meet medical industry standard ISO13485. 
Implants are produced in Oxford in our ISO13485 accredited manufacturing facility. Using Selective Laser Melting, implants are built layer by layer from titanium alloy powder. Under our validated quality management system, each implant and its associated surgical instruments are independently evaluated to ensure they meet the prescription before being delivered directly to hospital.

Developed with Surgeons

Our implant design pathway enables surgeons to visualise and reposition bones, plan the right surgical approach, and create the perfect implant for their specific patient’s anatomy.

Personalised Treatment

Our team of orthopaedic design engineers, clinical specialists, and materials experts work together with your surgeon, to make an implant that’s perfect for you – and only you.
