Biomimetic Implants and Technology
Biomimetics is the emulation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems.*
At CorNeat Vision we harness unique characteristics of microstructures of the human body to develop biomimetic implants which mend and replace damaged tissue, while mimicking its function.
Our core platform technology, which was already validated in-vivo, enables permanent implants to bio-mechanically integrate with live tissue without triggering an adverse immune system response.
Our platform is a 100% synthetic non-degradable porous material that mimics the micro-structure of the Extracellular Matrix (ECM), the natural biological collagen mesh that provides structural and biochemical support to surrounding cells. When implanted, this material stimulates cellular proliferation leading to progressive tissue integration.
This technology enables us to develop implants that are:
100% synthetic and therefore does not carry disease
Effectively bio-integrate and therefore heal faster
Do not rely on any type of harvested tissue and therefore scalable
CorNeat Vision’s platform technology has dozens of applications across diversified therapeutic fields. The platform material can be produced in various 2D and 3D forms enabling the following functions:
Physical attachment of implants to tissue
Concealment of implants & sensors
Soft tissue repair and permanent reinforcement
Fabrication of membranes and tissue barriers
CorNeat Vision’s initial set of novel implants combine its biomimetic technology with innovative ideas to effectively address unmet needs in the areas of ophthalmology and periodontology. We are currently expanding our IP portfolio to additional fields of medicine.

Our Mission: Harness Biomimicry For Improving Health
Our mission is to promote health and equality worldwide through innovative biomimetic medical solutions that are widely accessible.
Our goal at CorNeat Vision is to innovate, collaborate and grow in our efforts to introduce biomimetic implants with the aim of permanently resolving medical and surgical challenges in diversified therapeutic fields.
We promote permanent solutions to medical problems through an active learning process, placing the physician's ease-of-use as a top priority.
About CorNeat Vision
CorNeat Vision was established in December 2015 with the goal of developing, producing and introducing to global markets a scalable artificial solution for global corneal blindness, while eliminating the dependency on donor tissue.
Impressed with our pre-clinical trials, which demonstrated progressive and seamless tissue integration of our biomimetic material, the company's advisory board suggested replacing the use of tectonic tissue grafts with our material in other ophthalmic surgical procedures. Realizing the potential of our platform technology, we registered IP for additional devices in the ophthalmic space.
In order to fully exploit the business potential of our technology and to maximize its impact on human health, we have expanded our IP and product portfolio and introduced solutions in additional fields of medicine. Our first such product is aimed at permanently resolving gingival recession and replacing the current use of degradable tissue grafts.
Our first two products, the CorNeat EverPatch (synthetic tissue substitute) and the CorNeat KPro (synthetic cornea), are in clinical trials and expected to receive initial marketing approval in 2022 and 2023, respectively.
