AO, Icotec developing non-metallic spinal stabilization system — 3 insights

Spinal Tech

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.
