OR AKIVA, Israel, June 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —
Expanding Orthopedics Inc. (EOI), a privately-held medical device company focused on developing and commercializing innovative expandable devices for spine surgery, today announced CE mark of the FLXfit™15, enhancing the already successful FLXfit™ 3D expandable cage. The FLXfit™15 expands up to 4mm and enables controlled lordosis correction of up to 15⁰. There are two linear length options; a 40mm and a 32mm version.
The higher range expansion will enable surgeons to better treat their patients and restore lordosis angle up to 15⁰. The 32mm length option will offer great flexibility in treating patients with smaller anatomies. The ability to deliver the largest, in-class, TLIF, expandable cage with 4mm height expansion and 15 degrees of lordosis correction through a small unilateral tube is a paradigm change in the MIS fusion market.
Ofer Bokobza, CEO of Expanding Orthopedics, commented “Expandable cages are gaining market momentum and play a key role in successful MIS fusion procedures. The FLXfit™ 3D expandable cage introduced a new paradigm with expandable cages and is already making a significant traction in the market place. We are thrilled with the release of the FLXfit™15 as it represents our continued commitment for innovation and ability to deliver state-of-the-art spine fusion solutions.” He concluded, “We believe that the versatility of the new FLXfit™ family will help EOI gain a greater share in the fusion surgery market both in MIS and open approaches.”
The FLXfit™15 is the subject of a pending 510k and is not available for sale in the US.
