Lake Mary, Florida Eden Spine (www.EdenSpine.com), a Florida based Medical Devices organization focused on developing the latest generation of spinal technologies, has been granted a U.S. patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and from the European Patent Office for the PERFX-2™, a Posterior Dynamic Stabilization system designed to remove pain without necessarily removing motion.
The PERFX-2™ is a pedicle screw based dynamic stabilization system, CE Marked and currently distributed internationally. According to Mourad Ben Mokhtar, head of Eden Spine’s Research & Development efforts, “the PERFX-2™ is the latest generation Dynamic Rod technology. It was designed to achieve stabilization of the diseased spinal segment while closely replicating its natural function, for better long term results”.
“Fusion has been the standard of care for debilitating back pain for over 3 decades,” said Guillaume Viallaneix, CEO. He added, “With an estimated 35% of fusion cases producing adjacent disc disease, it is clear that new, friendlier, motion preserving treatment options, that better replicate the natural movement of the spine, are in the best interest of both the patient and society. The PERFX-2™ is a step in that direction.”
“"This Patent provides further validation of our innovative approach to spinal research and highlights the potential for a significant advance in the treatment of a wide array of spinal indications,” added Guillaume Viallaneix, CEO. “With this patent, along with the rest of our IP portfolio and our extensive R&D efforts, we are in a strong position to move forward with our development plans in 2011 and beyond.”
