HUNTLEY, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today the alpha launch of the SIMPACT TRI-FIN Sacroiliac Joint Fixation Screw System.
“I am excited to add SIMPACT TRI-FIN to our growing portfolio of MIS Procedural Solutions, as well as providing surgeons an additional surgical option for sacroiliac joint fixation. SIMPACT TRI-FIN is unique in that it offers helical cutting flutes designed for faster and easier insertion, as well as a design that allows the screw to harvest local bone while being implanted across the SI joint,” said Mariusz Knap, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Life Spine.
The SIMPACT TRI-FIN system was designed with an anti-rotational sleeve to inhibit component back out, and a screw thread design which affords the surgeon the ability to compress and stabilize the SI joint.
SIMPACT TRI-FIN also continues the use of Life Spine’s OSSEO-LOC technology. OSSEO-LOC is a proprietary surface treatment that creates a unique osteophylic surface architecture for potential bone on-growth.1 The unique surface architecture promotes mineralization of implant, while negating potential challenges associated with surface treated implants.2
