New Technology Showcase
Spine Wave Velocity® Expandable
The Velocity® Expandable Interbody Device
is designed for easy insertion, optimal fit,
and maximum pre and post-expansion
Available in posterior and lateral op-
The Velocity® System allows pre-packing of the graft cham-
tions, the composite structure of the Veloci-
ty® implant features a stacked PEEK body to
facilitate graft loading by more closely matching bone stiffness
and a titanium shell for ease of insertion and strength. The
implant’s endplates feature a plasma spray titanium surface
coating to increase surface area for bone-to-implant interface.
ber and a unique, integrated post-expansion grafting method
for true endplate-to-endplate grafting through the chamber.
The Mazor X™ system is a transformative
surgical assurance platform for spine
surgery to maximize predictability for the
good of patients and those who treat them.
Mazor Robotics unveiled the new system in
July and will commercially launch Mazor X
at the North American Spine Society (NASS)
2016 Annual Meeting in Boston this October.
Precision Spine® MD-Vuetm Lateral
The Precision Spine® MD-Vue™ Lateral
Access System features a patented, nested
3-blade design that prevents blade creep in
lateral procedures. It incorporates a large
blade diameter for increased surface area
contact, which minimizes the pressure on
neural structures during retraction. The
radiolucent retractor increases visibility of critical anatomical
structures during intraoperative C-Arm use. Infinite Cranial/
Caudal Resolution is featured, designed to prevent unwanted
nerve pressure by permitting the surgeon to dial in precisely
the desired amount of retraction, in contrast to other systems
which permit only traditional incremental step retraction. The
system also features an industry-leading integrated, adjust-
able dual light source.
gSource gSilicone Rod Shears
gSilicone Rod Shears from gSource - An
instrument of “shear” genius!
Winner of the Excellence in Surgical
Products Award, recognized for excellence
in surgical performance, safety, and effi-
ciency! Shears 3 different rod diameters
- 4.5mm, 5.5mm and 6.35mm rods, while
double action design provides greater ease in cutting. Rods
are sheared, leaving a smooth and clean surface rather than a
sharp, jagged, burr-like surface. Available with (gS 83.7290) or
without (gS 83.7280) detachable handles. Biocompatible sil-
icone handles help to prevent slippage and provide a secure,
comfortable grip. High quality precision instrument made
from German stainless steel.
