Auctus Surgical has begun development on a dynamic vertebral body tethering system for non-fusion growth modulation in pediatric scoliosis patients. The system consists of a flexible tether affixed to the convex side of a scoliotic spine. The tether may be tensioned operatively to provide some correction, while the remainder of the correction occurs as the […]
Clubfoot is a 3-dimensional (3D) deformity of the foot and the most common skeletal deformity in children with an incidence of 1-2/1000 births. Without treatment, children develop lifelong difficulties walking and those in low and middle income nations endure abuse and neglect. Under the current standard of care, pediatric orthopedic surgeons use the Ponseti method […]
We develop a surgical scanner that provides instant 3D imaging during surgery. Our core technology is A.I. image creation. We provides faster and more accurate imaging information to surgeons by merging real-time data gathered during surgery based on x-rays with prior information. This technology enables to reduce the image acquisition time and the amount of […]
AMB Surgical’s FLYTE is the next generation growing rod implant for the treatment of complex pediatric spine deformities. FLYTE is a sophisticated electro-mechanical, software activated device to provide real-time biomechanical feedback to guide treatment allowing surgeons to perform accurate, non-surgical skeletal adjustments. The results in are expected to reduce costs, surgical risks and improved patient […]
Not surprisingly, adolescents with scoliosis are incredibly active on social media platforms and the internet searching for support, advice and access to the latest medical technology available. ApiFix’s game-changing treatment for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis has already made its way to the pages of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and the like and patient demand is expected to […]
The Pediatric Vision Scanner (PVS) is the solution to amblyopia and strabismus detection. The PVS device is a handheld device that scans both eyes of a child in under 3 seconds and can be operated by a non-clinician with no requisite skills. The technology capitalizes on a polarization phenomenon that is unique to the eye […]
AventaMed’s V-tube device consolidates required surgical instruments into one ergonomic, hand held device, with a proprietary tube pre-loaded at its tip, allowing an ENT surgeon to place the tube in seconds. The surgeon places the device into the child’s ear, pierces the ear drum and pushes the blue button to deploy the tube. The entire […]
Pediatric patients have been as poorly served by inadequate prosthetic sockets as adults. LIM Innovations adult above-knee prosthetic socket is new in terms of structure, use of thermoplastic- fiber composite materials, custom-fit, and adjustability. It delivers a highly individualized fit via a mass customization approach. It is intended to leverage lessons learned in design, engineering, […]
A collaboration has been established with two bioengineers at University of North Texas to develop a simplified growth plate monitoring device using a conductive rubber technology. Attaching a conductive rubber strip across the growth plate, one can detect bone elongation coming from the growth plate by constructing a simple electronic circuit composed of a sensor […]
