Second generation viscosupplement solution indicated in the treatment of pain in small joints affected by osteoarthritis.
UNIQUE COMBINATION OF CROSS-LINKED HYALURONIC ACID + MANNITOL
MEDICAL DEVICE – 1 x 1 ml
(SINGLE INTRA-ARTICULAR INJECTION)
HAppyMini® is supplied in a 1ml pre-filled syringe and is entirely appropriate for intra-articular injection into:
TMC joint of the thumb – Fingers – Big toe – Temporomandibular joint – Wrist – Subtalar joint
High Concentration for Prolonged Activity
HAppyMini® contains high concentration of hyaluronic acid: 1.6% i.e. 16 mg/syringe.
Cross-Linked Hyaluronic Acid
HAppyMini® is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel (IPN-Like technology)
- Ensures a gel-like rheological behaviour, maximizing then the mechanical properties of hyaluronic acid.
- Increases the residence time of the gel in the joint cavity, preventing biodegradation from free radicals and enzymes.
IPN-Like Technology: a unique and patented cross-linking process
Compared to the classic cross-linking technique, the IPN-Like technology, or InterPenetrated Cross-linked Networks, involves combining, inserting one into another, two monophasic hyaluronic acid networks previously purified and cross-linked which are mechanically independent. Interpenetration of Cross-linked Networks:
- Optimizes the density of the chemical bonds while minimizing the use of reticulating agent (BDDE) within the monophasic gel, ensuring a longer-lasting effect of the product.
- Preserves the partial independence of the inter-penetrated networks and guarantees the gel is supple and easy to inject into the joint.
HAppyMini® also contains high concentration of mannitol (35mg/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 HAppyCross™ to guarantee a stability of its rheological properties all along its storage.
HAppyMini® is highly purified and results from bacterial fermentation.
