MORRISTOWN, N.J., Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tyber Medical, a privately held company focused on developing innovative medical devices for private label opportunities and advancing the science of bioengineered surfaces, announces the commercial launch of their lateral plating system.
Tyber Medical is excited to announce a product portfolio expansion with a low profile lateral plate including an innovative fixation technology. Through the use of new and patented features, the implant provides three points of fixation in each vertebral body, eliminating some instrumentation required by other systems on the market while minimizing surgical steps. In addition, to reduce the possibility of neurologic deficit, the elegant design of the screw mates it flush with the surface of the plate when locked. The result is potentially the best fixation option available.
"The market for lateral access instruments and implants is one of the fastest growing segments. Companies that haven't already secured their share of the market will soon find it harder and harder to compete. This new lateral plating system, together with Tyber's lateral retractor and interbody product, creates one of the best lateral access systems available in the market today," said Steve Zeiger, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing at Tyber Medical.
According to multiple market research sources, the global market for minimally invasive surgery is forecast to grow faster than any other segment over the next 3 - 5 years. Further, in todays OR, the posterior lumbar business goes hand in hand with the lateral business. The launch of Tyber Medical's competitive lateral implant, complete with a lateral plating system, is very timely considering the inflection point the market is approaching where the utilization of other approaches to the lumbar spine is reported to be stabilizing or even shrinking.
