    Repairing herniated discs is a clinical need that has still not been met. When the discomfort becomes unbearable, surgery can be performed and the intervertebral disc is generally removed. However, this can further reduce the patients’ quality of life. Scientists at DITF, in cooperation with the Spanish company NEOS Surgery S.L., have developed a textile-based device for treating herniated discs. The device is a minimally invasive “repair kit” that not only relieves patient suffering, but also ensures that the disc retains its shock absorbing function.
