Aragan Plus Injection is a medical equipment which generates cartilage between bones without surgeries for senile degenerative arthritis patients. Existing ‘Aragan’ has to be injected 5 times consecutively for a week for one year treatment effects, but new ‘Aragan Plus’ can have the same effects by 3 times consecutive injection for a week by using polymer HA medicines.
Because polymer HA medicine has similar molecular weight with that of human body joint synovia, it warps the cartilages and makes cartilage movements smooth. This effect reduces patient’s pains and prevents joint cartilage degeneration. Additionally it has very little side effects because its uses natural ingredients.
