InterMed Resources and Z-Medical have come to a distribution agreement with US-based HealthTrust. InterMed will distribute spinal implants manufactured by Z-Medical (Tuttlingen, Germany) to HealthTrust, a group purchasing and total cost management organisation that serves nearly 1,600 acute care facilities across the USA.
Under the agreement, Z-Medical will sell its minimally invasive Z-pedicle screw system at a contracted price for distribution exclusively through InterMed Resources to HealthTrust member facilities throughout the USA.
Z-Medical’s minimally invasive Z-pedicle screw system is designed to offer surgeons a solution for their indication-specific needs. It includes pre-sterilised implants, only one instrument set and a screw design intended to enable surgeons to efficiently and cost-effectively address the most common pathologies. It was designed for a minimally-invasive approach for less tissue disruption, blood loss and trauma and is approved for degenerative, trauma, tumour and deformity applications.
