The JewelACL is a specialised textile scaffold which is rendered versatile for ACL reconstruction by various structural features. The scaffold is treated with a proprietary gas plasma treatment process that increases its surface energy and renders it hydrophilic.

The JewelACL can be implanted using modern ACL guidewire system with a similar anteromedial or transtibial surgical technique to that utilised for hamstring grafts.


  • The JewelACL is indicated ACL reconstruction. It has been designed for use in partial or total tissue sparing ACL reconstruction with hamstrings.

Features and benefits

  • The continuous tubular form which can accommodate a hamstring tendon; this is facilitated by the suitability placed side openings.
  • The open weave sections with appropriate spacing to encourage tissue ingrowth into the scaffold.
  • The densely woven sections which have superior handling properties.
  • The JewelACL is a bio-enhanced prosthesis for the ACL reconstruction.
  • The JewelACL can be secured to the bone with currently available fixation devices
