Integrum AB is a publicly traded company (INTEG B: Nasdaq First North exchange) based outside of Gothenburg, Sweden with a U.S. subsidiary in San Francisco, CA. Since 1990 osseointegration, the science behind the OPRA™ Implant System, has been helping individuals with amputations towards an improved quality of life. Thorough surgical experience gained over almost three decades from 500 surgeries in 13 countries has led to the development of Integrum’s system for bone-anchored prosthetics – a beneficial alternative to the traditionally used socket prosthesis. Integrum’s OPRA™ Implant System was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015 for use in the U.S. under a Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) designation which was reviewed through the Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) pathway. The OPRA™ Implant System is the only FDA approved technology for bone anchored prosthetics available in the U.S. More information on the company and its innovative solutions for amputees can be found at www.integrum.se.
