Advanced image-based design software and additive manufacturing technologies allow Ossis to design and manufacture ALIF implants that are a major leap forward from traditional “off the shelf” implants. The benefits of using an Ossis custom ALIF implant include:
- optimised implant positioning and geometry to restore function, with significant improved stress distributions
- porous scaffold surfaces that guarantee osseointegration
- optimised screw positions, based on bone density, to maximise short term fixation
- detailed preplanning to remove the unknowns
Using the latest technology and its experience Ossis can deliver these benefits to you at a cost typically less than that of traditional implants.
Applying Technology to Improve Results
Ossis’ custom ALIF implants are manufactured using advanced additive manufacturing techniques which create a titanium porous scaffold component with proven osseointegrative properties. Successful osseointegration is an important contributor to the long-term stability of ALIF devices and contributes to a lower rate of revision.
Screw fixation, using locked head screws providing immediate stability to the implant construct above and below the ALIF level, is easily achieved with a one-piece titanium implant. Ossis has the ability to customise screw trajectory to the patient’s anatomy so that better fixation can be achieved.
