Intelligent Implants is creating a new gold-standard for orthopaedics implants with SmartFuse wireless technology. Surgical failure rate in spinal fusion remains unacceptably high in high-risk patients. Non-fusion can occur in up to 40% in complex cases and revision cases. The current gold standard solution for solving the issue with non-unions has negative side effects, due to bone overgrowth including paralysis, cancer and death.
Intelligent Implant’s SmartFuse addresses the issues of non-union and bone overgrowth by harnessing the local delivery of electrical energy to accelerate bone growth, control the formation of new bone and directly measure the quantity and quality of new bone formed. The low gravity environment in space leads to adverse skeletal alteration. With Intelligent Implants’ osteo-induction and monitoring systems and technology these challenges can be met.
