NanoLock surface technology is roughened to the nano-level
Titan Spine offers a full line of Endoskeleton titanium implants that feature its proprietary NanoLock surface technology. NanoLock was launched in the USA in October 2016 following US Food and Drug clearance in late 2014.
The surface technology consists of a unique combination of roughened topographies at the macro-, micro-, and nano-levels. This combination of surface topographies is designed to create an optimal host-bone response and actively participate in the fusion process. By promoting the upregulation of osteogenic and angiogenic factors necessary for bone growth, encouraging natural production of bone morphogenetic proteins, downregulating inflammatory factors, the technology is intended to create potential for a faster and more robust fusion.
An in-depth look at the NanoLock technology and its competitors can be found in our recent surface technology feature.
All Endoskeleton devices are covered by the company’s risk share warranty.
