Our intellectual property portfolio keeps growing, reinforcing the uniqueness of the DSG technology, a key asset in the context of our strategic discussions with potential industry partners.’
Since its inception, SpineGuard develops and maintains a significant IP portfolio including 12 patent families totaling 65 patents and applications as well as 3 trademarks, in the major geographies such as Europe, USA and China.
Founded in 2009 in France and the USA by Pierre Jérôme and Stéphane Bette, SpineGuard is an innovative company deploying its proprietary radiation-free real time sensing technology DSG® (Dynamic Surgical Guidance) to secure and streamline the placement of implants in the skeleton. SpineGuard designs, develops and markets medical devices that have been used in over 80,000 surgical procedures worldwide. Sixteen studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals have demonstrated the multiple benefits DSG® offers to patients, surgeons, surgical staff and hospitals. Building on these solid fundamentals and several strategic partnerships, SpineGuard has expanded its technology platform in a disruptive innovation: the « smart » pedicle screw launched late 2017 and is broadening the scope of applications in dental implantology and surgical robotics.
