About Applied Spine Technologies Inc., and Stabilimax(R)

Applied Spine Technologies Inc., headquartered in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, is developing Stabilimax, a posterior dynamic stabilization device designed to support an injured or degenerated spine without eliminating motion. Stabilimax is expected to offer numerous advantages over current spinal fixation products and even new artificial disc products—including a much less invasive and less traumatic implant procedure, maintenance of spine motion and disc function, and the potential to prevent or slow adjacent-segment disc disease.

Applied Spine is currently conducting a multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical trial to compare posterior dynamic stabilization using the Stabilimax Dynamic Spine Stabilization System to traditional spinal fusion stabilization to treat degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. Applied Spine has enrolled more than 100 patients to date.

Stabilimax is an investigational device in the United States. It is limited by United States (U.S.) Federal Law for investigational use only.
