Össur partners with the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) for first global Patient Registry
- March 17th, 2017
Össur is pleased to announce that it is one of the founding sponsors of the ICRS Patient Registry. This global, web-based patient registry, offers a unique international data pool for articular cartilage injury, history, and treatment worldwide.
The ICRS Patient Registry is intended to dramatically expand the body of evidence available to clinicians, companies, and health funders. The registry will provide pooled data that can be harnessed to better understand the most effective, safe, economical, and clinically-relevant treatments, devices, and practices, in the treatment of acute cartilage damage and early osteoarthritis.
The ICRS general mission is to advance science and education in the prevention and treatment of cartilage disease worldwide. Their objectives include the provision of continuing education and training to physicians and scientists with interest in the prevention and treatment of joint disease.
By being a Gold Sponsor of this new worldwide initiative, Össur continues to demonstrate its commitment to the ongoing research and exchange of knowledge within the field of Cartilage Repair.
