Women have many unique health concerns. Certain health issues affect only women and others are more common in women. What's more, men and women may have the same condition, but different symptoms, and may even require distinct treatment. DSM biomaterials play a big part in products and procedures specific to women. These biomaterials and are used in many medical devices and pharmaceutical products that improve the level of care in everything from gynecology to reproductive medicine and situations where women are vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and unwanted pregnancies.​

  • Guide wires​
  • Gynecological surgery​
  • Reproductive health devices​
