Amber Implants is a medical technology company located in the Netherlands, with a focus on the design and manufacturing of spinal implants with porous structures using Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology.
The company has extensive knowledge about the mechanical behavior of porous biomaterials created with AM techniques that will be used to create unique solutions for spinal and other orthopedic disorders in close collaboration with Technical University of Delft, Utrecht Hospital University and many other European research institutes.
VCFix: A more effective solution to Vertebral Compression Fracture
Amber Implants has developed the new generation and the only cementless treatment of patients with vertebral compression fracture, . The uniqueness of the design of VCFix resides in these components:
(I) No bone cement:
VCFix is able to secure and reinforce the vertebra without using polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) bone cement and, therefore, to avoid all the cement related complications. It is a more natural approach to VCF treatment and is ultimately preferred for younger patients.
(II) Optimised expandable structure: VCFix has a complex 3D printed titanium structure optimized for strong mechanical properties, maximum fracture reduction, and maximum Osseo-inductivity.
Optimum fracture reduction: VCFix provides an angular shape opening for better anatomical restoration and angle correction.
It has pedicle anchorage for better stability and optional posterior fixation for more unstable fractures, to maintain the anatomical restoration over time
At Amber Implants, we are determined to minimize the complications of the treatment for patients with spinal disorders with our novel and revolutionary expandable porous implants.
