ContinuOS
Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber was introduced to the orthopaedic market years ago. It is a braided suture prepared from fibers of UHMW, long chain linear polyethylene. These sutures have excellent strength, high flex strength, great abrasion resistance, good handling characteristics and elicit a minimal inflammatory reaction in tissue.

Everost is the first to introduce the ContinuOS loop fiber, which is constructed from the UHMWPE fibers and made into a continuous loop via a proprietary process. These loops are stronger than the single strand fibers. The ContinuOS loops have many applications and are very versatile.
