The AO Foundation and Icotec are developing a spinal stabilization system using Icotect's carbon/PEEK composite implant material.
What you should know:
1. Traditional metal implants create issues during imaging.
2. Icotec's implant material is non-metallic and creates clearer post-procedure images. The implant would also give patients with spinal tumors more treatment options, which metal implants traditionally limited.
3. The companies reached a strategic agreement to develop the spinal stabilization system.
