About Xiros Ltd

Xiros work with healthcare professionals, medical device companies and academic institutions to provide routines to market for inventions in the orthopaedic and sports medicine fields.

Originally called Neoligaments, the company was founded in Leeds by Dr. Bahaa Seedhorn, following collaboration with his friend and colleague Dr. Kyosuke Fujikawa to develop a textile-based implant and reconstruction technique for the anterior cruciate ligament.

The company has gained a reputation for innovation and technical excellence. Alongside the development and manufacturing of their own devices, they also provide extensive expertise in research, development, design, manufacturing and marketing to others in the medical field.

Their rapid response and focused FASTRAXTM service converts concepts into complete solutions through a rigorous project-managed process. This can be tailored to suit individual requirements, from completion of certain agreed portions of work over the product development process to full design and development, including obtaining regulatory approvals if required.
