A Novel Process to Coat Implant Surfaces with Bi-Functional Bioactive Antibacterial Coatings
Project ID: D2017-07Background In the orthopedic field, there is a need for improved capabilities for creating strong osseointegration at bone-implant interfaces and treating bacterial infections. Implant-related infections occur in 0.75% in hip implants and 1.5% in knee implants resulting in reduced lifespan and increased failure rate of prosthes...
Biomimetic approach to deposit bone-like coating on PEEK and other materials to improve osteoconductivity in implants
Project ID: D2011-33IP Status: Patent Pending U.S and EuropeInvention Description: Novel method to prepare an implantable article comprised of a biocompatible substrate (polymeric or ceramic) to accept a very thin biocompatible, bioactive coating material to facilitate bio-ingrowth between the substrate and bone or cartilage tissue.Applications: Bo...
Injectable Biodegradable Bone Matrix for Multiple Myeloma Lesion Augmentation and Osteoporosis
Project ID: D2013-62 Invention Description and Novelty: Unique technology targets both ends of the bone remodeling process by introducing therapies to suppress osteoporosis and restore bone formation in the case of multiple myeloma and other cancer-induced bone diseases. Value proposition: · Unique injectable bone filler composition sets i...
Stabilized Spinal Fixation Hook
Project ID: D2013-70 Invention Description and Novelty: Spinal hook achieves greater reliability for implantation, stabilization and poly-axial head movement, as well as reducing anatomical mismatch with the lamina, transverse process and pedicle before being locked by a rod and fastener. Value proposition: · Hook is shaped to engage multip...
Anchoring pedicle screw
Project ID: D2009-36 Invention Description and Novelty: Removable anchoring pedicle screw that includes an implant mounting screw, an anchor screw, and a nose piece. The anchor screw can be rotated relative to the implant mounting screw such that the nose piece engages an expandable anchor. The expandable anchor is disposed between the implant moun...
Bio-inspired Shape Memory Alloy Pedicle Screw to Compensate for Bone Degradation
Project ID: D2009-06Background:Treatments of spinal diseases such as degenerative disorders, spinal trauma, spinal tumor, and spinal deformity and the like, presently use a method of the transpediclular internal fixation with satisfactory results. The use of fixation assemblies in some patients is often complicated by the problem of hardware pull...
