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 35 years, today announced that its MOSS VRS® Pedicle Screw Platform, the most advanced system on the market today, is now available as a fully modular solution.
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 real-time 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.
By adding MOSS Modularity™ to this unique functionality, surgeons now will have the option to attach the modular MOSS VRS tulip heads after the pedicle screw shafts have been placed, allowing even more advanced and versatile surgical techniques.
”Over 30 years after the introduction of the MOSS System, the world’s first polyaxial pedicle screw, we are excited to continue to lead the advancement of posterior screw systems with the further expansion of our MOSS VRS platform,” said Markku Biedermann, President & CEO 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 Boston, MA, September 22-24, 2021 at booth #2349.
