Spine Wave commenced commercial launch of Tornado® Bioactive Bone Graft Matrix. Tornado complements the company's recently launched Tempest® Allograft Bone Matrix, both of which work with the Spine Wave's GraftMag® Graft Delivery System.
Tornado is a bioactive, osteoconductive, porous implant comprising carbonate apatite anorganic bovine bone mineral, 45S5 bioactive glass and highly purified Type I collagen. Available formats include moldable strips and pucks, including a 40cc strip for larger and more complex procedures.
Tornado Bioactive Bone Graft Matrix can be used after hydration in their original shapes or molded into alternative shapes or a putty to address a variety of intraoperative clinical needs.
“We are very excited to launch Tornado® Bioactive Bone Graft Matrix as an ideal complementary technology to the recently launched Tempest® Allograft Bone Matrix,” said Mark LoGuidice, Spine Wave’s CEO. “Each of these products works seamlessly with the company’s GraftMag® Graft Delivery System and, in combination, provide us with a suite of biologic offerings in a market segment that, until recently, we had no presence.”
He continued, “The balance of this year and 2021 represents an important transitional period for Spine Wave as we rapidly evolve from a niche player focused on expandables and other MIS technologies into a full line company. We look forward to several important product introductions in the coming quarters.”
