Changing architecture. Changing outcomes.
We know that altering the surface and structure of materials with porosity can improve fusion.1-4 Through Advanced Materials Science® (AMS), we develop proprietary surface and structural technologies designed to enhance the osseointegration and biomechanical properties of implant materials.5-6
AMS key principles
The breakthrough technologies designed through Advanced Materials Science are rooted in three key principles:
Cohere® and Coalesce™
The proprietary Porous PEEK technology introduces a first-of-its kind porous architecture designed to promote bone in-growth7,8 while maintaining the biomechanical and imaging properties of PEEK in general. The only Porous PEEK interbody implants available on the market, Cohere is available in a dynamic range of heights for use in the cervical spine, and Coalesce is available in straight and curved footprints to accommodate both TLIF and PLIF approaches.
The market disrupting design and manufacturing process of Modulus integrates endplate porosity with an optimized body lattice structure, providing a fully porous architecture and favorable environment for bone in-growth7 while enhancing visualization compared to traditional Ti interbody implants in a variety of imaging modalities. Modulus will be available in a number of footprints beginning with XLIF®.
