NONNWEILER, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NGMedical, a German medical device manufacturer exclusively focused on creating innovative technologies for spinal application announces the next major product launch for 2020.
The new BEE® HA cage was launched within the CE area. BEE® HA is an anatomically shaped cervical interbody made of the innovative PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced developed by Invibio Biomaterial Solutions, a leading supplier of high performance PEEK polymer solutions.
BEE® HA was developed to optimize fusion, while maintaining elasticity that is similar to bone and radiolucency of the cage body. Hydroxyapatite (HA), a well-known osteoconductive material that enhances bone apposition, is fully integrated, not coated, into the PEEK-OPTIMA™ matrix, making it available on all surfaces of the finished device. BEE® HA has also been submitted for FDA approval.
“This is an important step for NGMedical. We are happy having completed the launch of the next implant system in this difficult pandemic year. We are proud of the excellent work of our entire team.” says Dagmar Weiland, CEO of NGMedical.
Dr John Devine, Medical Business Director at Invibio said: “We congratulate NGMedical on the CE clearance of their newly developed BEE® HA cage and look forward to seeing their portfolio expand with more solutions. We continue to be impressed by NGMedical’s innovation with advanced materials such as PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced, which has the potential to bring positive clinical outcomes to cervical and lumbar spinal fusion patients in Europe.”
