coflex® is a SMART TECHNOLOGY
The mechanism of action of the coflex® within the patient anatomy addresses patients with advanced degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis appropriately, and effectively for improved clinical outcomes.
Designed to Rehabilitate the Motion Segment Post Direct
Intelligent Engineering Design
The engineering details of the coflex® device were specifically designed to optimize patient outcomes in the surgical treatment of advanced degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis.
The coflex® device is a SMART TECHNOLOGY that provides a new surgical solution for spinal stenosis that maintains sagittal balance, neutral stabilization, and natural kinematics. Furthermore, it is Specific to patient anatomy, Maintains foraminal height, Addresses back and leg pain, Rehabilitates the motion segment, and is Tested: FDA PMA approved.
True Motion Preserving Device
The coflex® device is a SMART TECHNOLOGY that is non-fusion and can support forces up to 220 N without experiencing permanent implant deformity.1 In a published article titled, "Determination of the in vivo posterior loading environment of the coflex® interlaminar-interspinous implant," by Trautwein et al, the implant fatigue strength is significantly higer than the measured median force, which explains the extremely rare observation of a coflex® fatigue failure.1
25-second video animation
This video animation briefly conveys the dynamic characteristics of the coflex® implant in terms of strength, force, and deflection. An evaluation of the in vivo mechanical testing and finite element analysis performed on the coflex® device demonstrates that the implant can withstand and bear force and dynamic loading conditions.
