Professor Fillipo Randelli will present scientific evidence supporting the use of these collagen devices and how they are used in European practices to assist and accelerate the functional recovery phases. In his presentation, Prof Randelli specifically focused on the application of one of the devices, MD-Tissue, in treating Greater Trochanter Pain Syndrome (GTPS) (Effect of a Collagen-Based Compound on Morpho-Functional Properties of Cultured Human Tenocytes) published in the journal, ‘Cells’ in 2018.
