EDGe Surgical granted US patent for next-generation Awl-in-One Tap


EDGe Surgical has been granted a US patent for its next-generation Awl-in-One Tap device–a single-use spinal surgery instrument with disposable neuromonitoring electromyography (EMG) system and digital depth measurement built in.  

The device, which is under development and is designed to provide cost-effective spine navigation, is intended to be used when creating a screw hole pathway during posterior pedicle spinal fusion surgeries.

Christopher Wilson, CEO of EDGe Surgical, said: “As more and more spine fusion surgeries move to the outpatient setting, surgeons require the same safety and accuracy of placing surgical screws afforded at the inpatient setting.

“The Awl-in-One Tap with NerveNAV technology aims to cost-effectively address those needs, and it is designed to also be used by larger hospitals looking to add more a more cost-effective spine navigation solution.”

The Awl-in-One Tap device has been granted patent 10,912,483 titled ‘Handheld devices for use in medical procedures’ by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
