The first true minimally-invasive Spinal Fusion System

Project description

Miniature screw-less implant-based spinal fusion procedure

Spinal fusion involves the surgical connection of two or more vertebrae to eliminate motion. The company has developed an alternative to the current screws and rods used for spinal stabilisation. While current procedures use the screws and rods to create an artificial bridge, zLOCK utilises our spine's natural bridge for stability. Funded by the European Innovation Council, the zLOCK project aims to clinically validate and commercialise a minimally invasive procedure using its bendable implant that adjusts to the patient's anatomy. The porous texture of the implant facilitates bone growth and fusion. Moreover, implant placement requires only a minimally invasive skin incision, allowing the procedure to be performed in an outpatient setting.
