HAppyVisc

MEDICAL DEVICE – 3 x 2 ml pre-filled syringes

 

High Molecular Weight

HAppyVisc™ is a visco-elastic gel which combines high molecular weight hyaluronic acid of 1.5 million Daltons and mannitol.

High concentration for prolonged activity

HAppyVisc™ contains high concentration of hyaluronic acid (1.55%) i.e. 31 mg/syringe. HAppyVisc™ brings 50% more hyaluronic acid than a traditional visco-elastic solution.

Mannitol

HAppyVisc™ contains high concentration of mannitol (70 mg/syringe).

Long-lasting effect: Mannitol is an anti-oxidant which protects hyaluronic acid chains from free radicals and limits their degradation increasing then their residence time in the joint cavity.

Analgesic effect: Due to its free radical scavenging properties, mannitol also ensures local analgesic effect.

Stabilizer: Because it is a thermal stabilizer, mannitol allows HAppyVisc™ to guarantee a stability of its rheological properties all along its storage.

Safe

HAppyVisc™ is highly purified and results from bacterial fermentation.
