Arthrosamid is a revolutionary safe and sustained injection to help patients suffering from knee arthritis. It is a non-biodegradable hydrogel, containing 97.5% water and 2.5% cross-linked polyacrylamide backbone.
The new injection has proven to reduce stiffness between the joints, enhancing mobility and improving the quality of life.
How does it work?
Arthrosamid is injected into the inner joint cavity, which helps to restore the viscosity within the synovial fluid. This further helps lubricating and cushioning the joint, creating a ‘cushion-like’ effect. This all works with a single dose of injection, lasting up to 56 weeks.
No pain, simple steps
Step 1: Swab the area around the knee. Local anaesthetic is used to numb the area.
Step 2: Removable of joint effusion. With the help of ultrasound, the injection is performed.
Step 3: Needle is removed and a plaster is placed over the injected site.
