The Benefits of Balance

We need everything in moderation. 

This isn’t just a saying used by doctors and nutritionists. It is a basic biological principle. Our bodies survive day-to-day by maintaining a dynamic balance of opposing forces and signals. Our “normal” is actually the successful balancing of a seesaw. A stable equilibrium.

The scientific term for this balancing act is homeostasis. This concept is not new. It was originally described by ancient Greek philosophers who thought that life consisted of elements in “dynamic opposition or alliance” to one another. Over two millennia later, we can still see the validity of homeostasis even at the molecular level when studying signaling pathways in the body.

Redefining Regenerative Medicine

The healing cascade is a complex and dynamic series of phases that has been studied in depth and characterized into three general phases: inflammation, proliferation, and maturation. During these stages, signaling proteins and local cells work to repair the injured tissue back to its original form. The problem? The healing process, like many functions of the body, is not perfect. Scars, for example, are a visual representation of how a wound is unable to fully return to its original form and function. Even when a scar appears to have dissipated, the ‘new’ tissue formed is dissimilar and more vulnerable than the original tissue.

What’s the point?

In an ideal world, tissue would be restored perfectly back to its inherent function and structure. This notion of optimized healing is the foundation for StimLabs' conception. StimLabs believes in optimizing the healing cascade by advancing research and development within regenerative medicine.

Back up. What is regenerative medicine?

Why create a blog?

We want to share our perspective and establish an open line of communication with clinicians, scientists, patients and more. We’ll be using this blog as a forum for a few different topics.

1. Corporate Updates

Being new and different requires clarity. As our first two products have redefined what’s possible with placental tissue, we’ve found the need to have a forum for company updates.

2. Scientific Clarity

The new world of regenerative medicine is largely unexplored. As a result, there is a lot of conflicting information about the science behind products. Our Product Development team has spent their careers researching and developing new technologies, and we want to share some of the information they’ve gathered.

3. Product Updates

We move quickly with new initiatives. Within a year of founding StimLabs, we brought Revita to market, and just a few months later, we brought Ascent to market. As you’ll learn in our next post, we’re plotting a course for even more ambitious products, and our current offerings are just the beginning.

We’re excited about the future, and are looking forward to an open dialogue with the scientific and clinical communities about products that will have a lasting impact on patient care.
