      next generation” in interspinous stabilization!

      LfC is one of few spinal implant developers worldwide, who can be proud of launching to the market the ”next generation” of interspinous implants. Years’ international experience gained with previous implant solutions (InterS/inSWing) and many consultations with surgeons resulted in the development of an implant that would place itself ahead of competitive products, but most of all, one that meets the surgeon’s expectations.

      ”InsEx” (Interspinous Expandable Spacer) is an advanced, low invasive medical device, which is introduced into interspinous space from the one-sided posterior approach. With the help of a sophisticated inserter, simultaneous implantation and subtle distraction occur – until the complete closure of the implant (without damaging the spinous processes). This procedure provides safe, non-damaging implantation with secure positioning of the implant.
