The company said Rotation’s rotator cuff system is “highly complementary” to its existing portfolio of shoulder repair technologies to supplement repairs of more complex tears.

The procedure involves using a bioinductive implant that helps tendons heal by inducing growth of new tendon-like tissue, enhancing the body’s natural healing response.

It helps prevent tear progression and reduce the incidence of re-tears.
