Ting Sin: Cost Competitive and Safe Orthopedic Implants
Miles Yen, CEO Govement and mobility are crucial for the health and well-being of an individual. If a person cannot move a joint freely through its full range of motion, it affects his/her everyday life. In such instances, an orthopedic implant is surgically placed into the body to restore a function by replacing or reinforcing a damaged structure. There are replacements available for almost every bone in the body, starting from hand to elbow to radius to toe to heel and more. The functionality and longevity of the implant greatly depend on the material of the implant. The implant material choice is imperative because it can influence rigidity, corrosion, biocompatibility, and tissue receptivity. Simultaneously, its surface morphology affects its stability within the skeleton or the surrounding cement mantle.
Over the past few years, using compatible materials such as titanium has only increased in orthopedic implants. However, titanium may disrupt the normal functioning of surrounding bone, increase the risk of osteoporosis and bone cancer, cause MRI interference, all while making the patient’s daily life uncomfortable. These challenges triggered Ting Sin’s inception, a company that has developed a technology to accelerate the global progress of magnesium materials and expand product applications to solve existing orthopedic medical problems. These include secondary surgery for bone materials, issues, and reducing the risk of surgical infection and social costs. At the same time, magnesium can provide common infection accident since the magnesium has anti-bacteria and would healing stimulation advantages. The company’s team has researched magnesium implants’ usage and found out that it is one of the best materials close to bones and is degradable. “We can integrate the new generation of bone-implant magnesium alloy in medical raw material preparation, product manufacturing, and subsequent post-processing technologies to provide patients and co-operators competitive orthopedic implant products,” says Miles Yen, CEO of Ting Sin. “Also, we have overcome the older magnesium problems such as casting, manufacturing safety, strength and degradation problems, and so on.”
Orthopedic Implants that Mimic Bones
Ting Sin’s expert team has designed magnesium alloy bone screws using bone nature metal component, which provides the necessary strength, biocompatibility, and the needed functional alloy composition. “We have designed our uniquecomponent to make screws with excellent characteristics including overcoming the limitations of traditional in vivo applications of magnesium alloys to provide safe and non-toxic compositions,” says Miles. Besides, the company controls all manufacturing steps to ensure the quality of its products. For clinical application, the indications of using its first-generation screws are hand, foot and joint fractures. Ting Sin is continuously working on developing products type for other market applications. “We provide a degradable magnesium alloy material to develop orthopedic products, which can solve patients’ issues including cost and reduce infection rates since magnesium is anti-bacterial,” says Miles.

Notably, Ting Sin magnesium alloy’s composition can be easily obtained from the earth, which in turn makes the manufacturing cost of the product more competitive.
Ting Sin also organizes an expert team to solve current medical challenges, and it consists of professionals from different fields, including clinicians, materials experts, biomedical experts, medical engineering, and manufacturing. Similarly, for technical and product optimization, the company works with academic institutions and clinical users. “The goal of our magnesium medical device is to solve current medical problem, so we need to collect the opinions from clinicians and to know patient reviews. We strive to make the products suitable and workable for patients and clinicians,” says Miles.
Innovation and Precision at the Core
The company keeps track of the latest medical society information and various global professional medical exhibitions to understand upcoming trends of products. Besides, Ting Sin monitors academic research papers’ publication trend on the product development side to understand the latest technical development to incorporate the relevant information into its products’ design. Ting Sin holds innovation, precision, and cooperation as its work culture. With an open attitude, Ting Sin develops various orthopedic magnesium products such as bone plates and anchors. This technical breakthrough will expand the scope of magnesium materials to other medical fields such as stents and plastic surgery products, which could benefit more patients and contribute to the medical industry.
Catering to the Needs of Today and Tomorrow
Talking about the future, Miles says that orthopedics is an essential medical field given the current global aging population. With advances in science and technology such as medical treatment, public health, and nutrition, the world’s population of over 65 is multiplying. by 2050, the number of over 65 people is estimated to reach 1.55 billion, accounting for 15.8 percent of the global population. Asia has the largest population of senior citizens. This higher probability of suffering from multiple chronic diseases among the aging population increases the demand for orthopedic medical materials. The problem of elderly care has become more and more serious. Here, the development of bone materials that can benefit the elderly is necessary for the market and further benefit patients and their families, all driving the company’s expansion of the application to the orthopedic field.
Aligning with the need, Ting Sin will strategically cooperate with related orthopedic manufacturers to commercialize its products in diversified application development.
Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about changes in business models in various fields. In terms of medical treatment, less contact and long-distance diagnosis are the primary considerations. In terms of magnesium alloys’ characteristics, the orthopedic implant industry must reduce the frequency of patient visits to hospitals to reduce infection and other risks. Based on the above considerations, the biodegradable metal alloy has a better chance to achieve this direction. And Ting Sin is well-positioned to serve this market with a new generation of orthopedic biodegradable metal alloy materials like magnesium alloy hollow screws. Ting Sin will strategically cooperate with related orthopedic manufacturers to commercialize its products in diversified application development.

“We will develop clients through international cooperation to increase products confidence and the use opportunities,” says Miles. The manufacturing is currently in Taiwan as the primary strategy. However, for a long time, it does not rule out cooperating with foreign licensors.
Ting Sin holds innovation, precision, and cooperation as our work culture. The right attitude. “Do not say the unknowable or impossible to complete” and make efforts on the biodegradable magnesium alloy medical materials to more application and precision indications. We hope that cooperating units and manufacturers will work together to make suggestions and cooperation plans for this new generation of absorbable metal materials magnesium alloy in the other new orthopedic implants or medical fields.
From the geographical standpoint, Ting Sin is looking to expand its footprint across the globe giving priority to markets whose regulations accept this new material application in humans.” The manufacturing is currently in Taiwan as the main strategy. However, it does not rule out the opportunity to cooperate with foreign licensors,” states Miles. The company plans to use the new generation of degradable metal implant application concepts to enable patients and clinicians to have more choices to help better lives for patients. The company is also looking forward to working with manufacturers to make plans for this new generation of absorbable metal materials magnesium alloy in the other new orthopedic implants or medical fields. “We want to help clinicians choose an orthopedic implant that reduces the occurrence of fewer side effects, which will reduce the worries and disputes in the medical relationship,” concludes Miles.
