iOrthopedics has received patent awards and allowances for its Universally Expanding Cage (UEC), giving exclusive rights in the spine expandable interbody arena.
The U.S. Patent Office has granted validation for U.S. Patent Nos. 9,861,494 and 9,999,515, with confirmed claims covering a device and method for independently altering the distance and angle between opposing vertebral endplates from the proximal end of the device.
The UEC arthrodesis applies from cervical to lumbar regions, using novel internal mechanisms to expand rectangular, cylindrical or custom implants, with any surgeon-selected insertion vector.
