MIAMI & DONAUESCHINGEN, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biedermann Motech, the company that developed the world’s first polyaxial pedicle screw (MOSS® System) and pioneer in the spinal market for more than 30 years, today announced the further expansion of its product portfolio of advanced solutions for spinal surgery with the introduction of the MOSS VRS® Pedicle Screw System at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, September 25-27, 2019.
The MOSS VRS System features Next Generation Pedicle Screw Technology™, which allows the surgeon to lock the polyaxial angle of the pedicle screw at any angle, at any time during surgery. This provides surgeons unmatched intraoperative options using a single, highly functional implant.
In contrast to traditional pedicle screw systems, which include a wide range of different screw types, the MOSS VRS Pedicle Screw can be locked and unlocked as and when required by the surgeon during complex correction and reconstruction maneuvers.
“Over 30 years after the introduction of the MOSS System, the world’s first polyaxial pedicle screw, we are excited to lead the advancement of posterior screw systems again with the launch of MOSS VRS,” said Markku Biedermann, Chairman of Biedermann Motech, Inc.
The unique and proprietary technologies of the MOSS VRS System are licensed from Biedermann Technologies GmbH & Co. KG, a company which holds a broad and extensive patent and technology portfolio, and are exclusively available through Biedermann Motech.
Biedermann Motech will showcase the MOSS VRS System at the upcoming North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, September 25-27, 2019 at booth # 2230.
