Spinal Fusion Device

For fractured and compressed vertebrae, orthopedic surgeons rely on prostheses and bone cement to stabilize the area and relieve pain. These techniques can lead to a variety of complications.

Flexispine, a Maryland-based medical device technology company focused on motion restoration, stabilization, and endoscopy, sought a new type of lumbar and cervical prostheses to improve spinal procedures. Rather than creating a prosthesis that adheres directly to the spine, Flexispine is attached to lateral extensions, which are in turn secured by sacral screws.

Flexispine engaged Archimedic to provide the mechanical engineering and functional prototyping of the lumbar and cervical prostheses.

The design process involved importing anatomical spinal geometry and developing 3-D mechanical geometries to meet a wide spectrum of bone shapes and sizes.

With a patent secured and a functional prototype in place, Flexispine entered discussions with orthopedic companies to bring their product to market.
