2B1 operates in the field of medical devices for orthopaedic surgery and neurosurgery. Its activities include the conception, design, development, manufacturing and marketing of medical devices. 2B1 thus spans the whole process from idea to finished product.
At the present time, it operates in Italy, but plans to break into the international market through a network of collaborations currently being developed. 2B1 already has established partnerships with global market leaders.
Competencies e technologies
2B1 bases its core competencies on the experience acquired by its founder in the design and production of medical devices. The company's principal assets include some proprietary and licensed patents, under which it manufactures products for its own or third-party account. In the first case, the company distributes the products directly, while in the second case it sets up agreements with multinational companies. 2B1 can deliver a complete project design and production process leveraging on in-house competencies and tested partner suppliers. 2B1 collaborates on a regular basis with research agencies such as Sardegna Ricerche and the Politecnico di Milano University.
Products, services and applications
Certified products: - MicroPile - Boma - Injection Pin MicroPile is an intramedullary trans-cutaneous fixation system formed by two Kirschner wires and one clip to fasten wires together to compress the reduced fracture, assuring a faster healing and convalescence. The MicroPile system permits internal, external and hybrid synthesis. Boma is used to stabilise the vertebrae of the human spinal cord after traumatic events (fractures) or pathological events (fractures due to osteoporosis, brittle bone disease, tumours, etc.) through the injection of bone cement to fuse together the fractured bones and re-establish anatomic relations. This approach makes it possible to eliminate the spinal pain caused by nerve root crushing or by bone tissue damage. Injection Pin is a device for delivery and osteosynthesis in the fracture or bone damage treatment. It is useful to convey bone cement in osteoporotic bones or growth factors and biological healing and regenerating substances in good bone stock. It permits localized, gradual, and one or both sided injection in order to deliver the substance in the most proper region. Injection Pin has dedicated instruments.

iGeoPix is an iPhone/iPad interactive visual browser for geolocated photos. Unlike the current georeferenced pictures representations used by Panoramio, Google map, Yahoo! map, etc., with iGeoPix you will be able to see both near (center focus) and far (periferic context) photos, thanks to a non-linear zooming user interface. The variable tile size, bigger in the center and smaller near the borders, will further contribute to give you the feeling of a more immersive visual browsing experience.
