Life Spine Announces Nationwide Market Introduction of KINETIC(R)-SL Dynamic Anterior Cervical Plating System


5/19/2009 11:09:25 AM

-New internally dynamized anterior cervical plating system offers zero-step locking mechanism

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Spine announces the nationwide market introduction of the KINETIC-SL Dynamic Anterior Cervical Plating System. KINETIC-SL, which gained 510(k) approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in early 2008, is an internally dynamizing anterior cervical plating system and utilizes a zero-step locking mechanism allowing bone screws to be securely fixated without any additional locking components or implants. The self-retaining screw capture mechanism prevents screw backout while still allowing substantial screw angulation.

Michael S. Butler, Life Spine's president and CEO said, "The KINETIC-SL Dynamic ACP System is the fourth anterior cervical plating system that we have successfully brought to market. It combines the unique internally dynamizing features of the original KINETIC System along with the zero-step locking mechanism of the NEO(R)-SL static plating system. Surgeons involved with the limited release of KINETIC-SL have indicated good results with this system which is very promising."

Life Spine is dedicated to improving the quality of life for spinal patients by increasing procedural efficiency and efficacy through innovative design, uncompromising quality standards, and the most technologically advanced manufacturing platforms. Life Spine, which is privately held, is based in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. For more information, please visit http://www.lifespine.com.
