Strategic Initiatives

Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices (JNJ) acquired Emerging Implant Technologies (EIT), a manufacturer of 3D-printed titanium interbodies for spinal fusion. Financial terms were not disclosed. 

EIT’s 3D-printed devices address anterior, transforaminal and posterior lumbar fusion and cervical procedures. Implants are manufactured from EIT Cellular Titanium® that yields a porosity of 80% and are designed to mimic trabecular bone structure (obviating the need for bone graft) and address clinical shortcomings such as non-fusion, biocompatibility, subsidence, migration and image distortion.
