MP-1™ material was first introduced in THR surgeries as liners replacing metal, ceramic or PE components. MMA TECH received CE mark and concluded clinical trials.
Femoral ball is also being developed, assuring a much longer life spent and durability.

MP-1™ is a safe, bio compatible,  and durable polymer material.

MP-1™ polymer, originated from Jet engine bearings balls, exhibits a superior combination of strength, toughness, wear, creep and fatigue resistance, together with extensive bio compatibility which makes it suitable for medical device applications.

MMA Tech developed a novel advanced material, patent registered, tough, low-friction, biocompatible and wear resistant polyimide.

MP-1™ in medical applications and devices can revolutionize the  surgical implantology filed and markets. In orthopedic, trauma, knee, spine and the dental fields.

MMA Tech implants have been established in a successful pilot clinical study.

The trial was conducted in New-Zealand, and showed remarkably successful results. Trial showed that the implant is well tolerated and the patients returned to full activities with no adverse events.

These days getting to the 100 patient in orthopedic and trauma surgery with medical institutions joining from Australia, Canada and Israel.


Hip Replacement Surgery

Total hip replacement surgery has evolved dramatically over the years as advances in technology have made it possible to improve surgical techniques.  The primary orthopedic reconstructive targets are joints.  Hips and knees are the joints most commonly repaired with orthopedic implants.

According to AAOS and NIH approximately 10‐15%  of the  hip and knee operations necessitate costly

and  complicated revision surgeries within 15‐20 years.

Hip and Knee implants are subjected to enormous stress and shear forces.

The available materials in the market can not guarantee the required properties, causing:

  • Enormous human suffering
  • Revised surgeries
  • Implants recalls
  • Propounding implantations due to short materials lifetime.

Crosslinked UHMWPE 

Demonstrates high water absorption and high stiffness (deleterious for wear).

Are brittle and prone to fracture and stress-corrode in humid environment.









Produce potentially toxic, carcinogenic and allergenic wear debris.

Of orthopedic implants are wear resistant but tend to peel off with time (aging).


The Solution:  MP-1TM biomaterial:

MP-1™, a high performance polymer originating as a spin-off

from Jet engine ball-bearings.

Exhibits a superior combination of strength, toughness, wear, creep ,

fatigue resistance.

Proved to be Biocompatible, which makes it suitable for medical device applications.

MP-1™ was first designed to replace the acetabular liner of the Total Hip Replacement (THR) implant.

MP-1™ can be processed by conventional techniques of compression molding allowing a broad design and manufacture

flexibility, resulting in cost effectiveness.


MP-1TM liner main advantages are:

  • Cost effectiveness                                                                                                            Other liner                                    MP-1™ liner
  • Greater flexibility in implant design – higher Range of Motion
  • Economic for the healthcare system
  • Improved healing (faster and better)
  • Higher safety profile
  • Mechanical properties similar to bone
  • Three times the length of life spans of articulating implants
  •  Better quality of life for patients with
    fewer post-surgical complications
  • Surgery for younger patients (sport/ accident injuries)
  • Superior characteristics compared to existing implants
