DeGen Medical launched Impulse AM™, a 3D-printed porous titanium implant for posterior spinal interbody fusion. Impulse AM is reportedly the first 3D-printed spinal implant to employ Puri-Ti™, a different type of titanium material with a proprietary manufacturing process.
This product release provides implants and instrumentation designed for PLIF and TLIF fusion procedures. Impulse AM comes in a variety of sizes and anatomical designs to accommodate patient anatomy.
Highlights of the Puri-Ti Technology Include:
Proprietary “Green” Manufacturing Process: Throughout the entire manufacturing and post processing steps no cutting oils, fluids or heat treatment is required. This in conjunction with the Puri-Ti proprietary material is a completely “green” process that will shorten lead times for patient specific implants. It took three years to perfect the laser parameters and chemistry to create the Puri-Ti material. DeGen Medical is first company to break the mold and create a game changing process and material in medical device additive manufacturing space.
Patient Specific Implants: DeGen Medical will be able to create patient specific implants at a fraction of the time and cost of current products. Currently available products are utilized as one-offs and not for everyday surgical interventions. DeGen Medical plans to change this and become a market leader in patient specific solutions.
