Biologically Inspired Implants
Streamlined, intuitive, and cost effective
Developed by thought leaders in Orthopedics, Neurosurgery, and Pain Management, the OrthoFundamentals suite of implants and instrument kits are a great alternative to the traditional bulky instrumentation solutions provided by traditional medical device manufacturers.
A new way of building
Additive manufacturing has created a new pathway for medical device creation. Leveraging Electron Beam Melting (EBM) allows for unique lattice structures to be built, layer by layer, balancing mechanical strength with pre-defined surface characteristics.
Designed to optimize osteointegration
Recent studies have shown that additively manufactured orthopedic implants created through EBM have significantly higher bone-to-implant contact than conventionally machined screws. Additionally, new bone growth is evident at earlier time points compared to conventionally machined screws.
EBM additive manufacturing and the addition of a novel anodization process across the Trellis™ platform creates a macrostructure, microstructure, and nanostructured texture with calcium and phosphorus ions present in the oxide layer.
Observe the Trellis platform using a scanning electron microscope image of at 300x, 20,000x, and 80,000x magnification and compare that to a traditional machined orthopedic implant.
One patient, one instrument
Single-use instrumentation removes the inefficiencies of traditional reusable kits by removing lost productivity, lowering surgical site infections, lowering sterilization costs and always ensuring against missing or damaged items.
