German company NGMedical on Feb. 5 reported the first implantations of its Move-C cervical disc prosthesis.

Four things to know:

1. The Move-C cervical disc provides physiological motion in all six planes, including axial damping with progressive resistance to motion.

2. The device is 3D-printed with titanium endplates, without the use of polyethylene.

3. CE approval was granted in December and the first cases with the device were performed in January.

4. NGMedical is eyeing the launch of its 3D-printed BEE cervical cage, which is designed with a honeycomb structure.
