Challenges

Unanswered clinical problem with implant failure & screw loosening rates up to 15-63%1-4 with 82% of loosened screws being pulled out during rod connection assembly5.

Thoracolumbar fixation systems have become increasingly complex with excessive inventory requirements: 3-5 instruments trays or more and 400+ types of screws.

Procedural inefficiencies created from the time to set up, instrument and turn over room along with still a risk of being delayed or contaminated6-9.

Solutions

Controlled fixation platform to reproducibly apply the appropriate forces when assembling and locking a pedicle screw construct aiming to reduce loosening & hardware failure10.

Sterile multi-functional instruments and universal implants provide safety, reproducibility, flexibility and speed.11.

Integrated design of instruments, implants and surgical steps into the perioperative process allow for ready on-demand use which has shown reduced risk of surgical site infection6,11,13,14.

Controlled Fixation Platform

Neo Pedicle Screw System™

Exclusive Controlled Fixation Capability: Reproducible ability to apply appropriate mechanical forces to achieve an optimal correction and when assembling and locking a pedicle screw construct to reduce implant loosening, hardware failutres and support improved outcomes

Perioperatively Integrated Multi-Functional Instruments: 5 multi-functional instruments that replace 3 to 7 current trays which are universal, light weight and sterile with exclusive patented capabilities to enable full functionality for 90%+ of cases with minimal steps and increased efficiency gains

Universal Screw with Touch-Free Implant Protection: Universal, all-features-in-one screw design incorporates 16 possible feature combinations that come sterile packed and pre-mounted with a touch free dilation/protection sleeve enabling safety and flexibility

Neo is built on a unique environmentally friendly platform15 with implants that are zero-touch to decrease risk factors and cost11-12.

Neo Enabling Technologies

Neo continues developing new proprietary modular Controlled Fixation technologies, respectful of patient unique spinal conditions.

A next generation of force control set-screw/set-screw driver has embedded technology to allow for a fully controlled stress-less fixation and optimal correction.

An optional and powerful torque limiter adaptor designed for a simple, controlled and reproducible alignment and pre-fixation.

Enhanced Fusion Platform

 

Neo Cage System™ Technology
We integrate a fourth dimension with 3D printing: TIME

Easy Insertion and Reproducible Cage Placement: 
Bullet nose cage with rounded edges and 3D printed rotational rails for reproducible anterior cage placement and customizable lordosis application

Enhanced Fusion Support Capability :
Proprietary 3D printing algorithm creates a randomized Macro-, optimized Micro- and Nano- pore structure for best in class osteo-inductive properties and grip to endplates as established by science. Porosity of 60 % in the range of 250–940 μm has shown to support fusion and promote direct mechanical fixation1 providing an ideal osteoconductive structure for osseointegration2-4.

Streamlined Instruments with Touch-Free Cages
6 multi-functional instruments and sterile platform enable minimal steps and efficiency gains with a silicone cage sleeve to prevent touching when filling implant.
