This proprietary technology NUMIS™ was launched by Eden Spine in November 2008.
It offers the flexibility of the Plate and the adaptability of a polyaxial screw, and fulfills the needs of surgeons preferring lumbar plate fixation to rod fixation.
The NUMIS™ Semi Rigid lumbar plating system was built upon Dr. Walt Simmons' heritage and Dr. David McCord's design rationale.
It is an instrumentation system for spine, designed to enhance decompression and stabilization in the course of any of the several fusion techniques such as Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF), Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF), Posterolateral (intertransverse), and Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) and other spinal procedures requiring stabilization.
The exclusive washer design and polyaxial bandclamp allow the system to possess an unlimited range of placement of the plates.
The NUMIS™ is 510(k) cleared and available for sale in the United States.
The NUMIS™ is a low profile semi-rigid plating system that offers flexibility in both product design and surgical technique.
It increases flexibility and allows load sharing with the anterior column.
The Unique polyaxial washer allows unlimited range of placement on the plate
The semi-rigid plates are designed to act as a shock absorbers, distributing the load evenly throughout the construct and addressing the issue of adjacent disc disease.
Bolts are cannulated for ease of use with a blunt tip guide pin and color coded by diameter.
Short thread bolts are pre-cut for ease of placement.
Washer at the bolt-plate interface allows a high degree of variability.
The washer is a thin circumferential band of metal that acts as a bandclamp to grip the plate while allowing angulation of the bolt. One style of washer is used on every bolt in the construct.
Only one locking nut is necessary for the entire system
It is the most advanced plating system in the market today.
