  • Publication number: 20200337854
    Abstract: Arcuate fixation members with varying configurations and/or features are provided, along with additional components for use therewith in provided fixation systems and intervertebral implant systems. The arcuate fixation members may be of varying lengths, cross sectional geometries, and/or cross sectional areas, and may be configured with various features such as heads configured to accept other fixation system components, tabs to allow arcuate fixation member-in-arcuate fixation member or fixation anchor-in-arcuate fixation member configurations. Applications of fixation systems and intervertebral implants systems utilizing arcuate fixation members are particularly suitable when a linear line-of-approach for delivering fixation members is undesirable.

  • Publication number: 20200178947
    Abstract: An insertion instrument is configured to eject at least one anchor body into respective target locations, and subsequently apply a predetermined tensile force at least one actuation member of the at least one anchor member so as to actuate the at least one anchor body from a first configuration to a second expanded configuration. The insertion instrument can include a tension assembly that applies the predetermined tensile force to the at least one actuation member. The predetermined tensile force can be defined by a distance of travel, a predetermined failure force of a fuse, or a combination of distance of travel and a predetermined failure force of a fuse.

  • Patent number: 10238400
    Abstract: A soft tissue displacer tool can include a shaft that is elongate along a central axis, the shaft including a shaft body that defining a proximal end, a distal end that is spaced from the proximal end in a distal direction, and a central location that is disposed equidistantly between the proximal and distal ends. The shaft defines at least one inclined groove that 1) is inclined with respect to a plane that is normal to the central axis, and 2) revolves about the central axis, the groove terminating at a first end and a second end that is spaced from the first end along the distal direction, and the second end is spaced from the distal end. Soft tissue displacer tools are also described in which the shaft is cannulated. The soft tissue displacer tool can further include a guidance member, such as a K-wire, a trocar, or a bone punch.

  • Publication number: 20180368736
    Abstract: A method of operating a wearable (200) includes receiving an inertial measurement (232) from an inertial measurement sensor (230) disposed on a user (10). The inertial measurement is indicative of a movement of the user from a first pose (P1) to a second pose (P2) away from the first pose. The method also includes determining a movement vector (M) defining the movement of the user from the first pose to the second pose based on the inertial measurement. The movement vector is relative to the first pose. The method also includes determining whether the movement vector satisfies a threshold movement vector (MT). When the movement vector satisfies a threshold movement vector, the method includes instructing at least one actuator (220) to apply a feedback response on the user.

  • Patent number: 10022122
    Abstract: The present invention provides an apparatus for suture-based tissue repair, preferably for the annulus of a spinal disc, that includes a suture loop preferably pre-tied with a sliding knot, a clasp-type component that captures the ends of the suture loop, and an optional plug member that fills the tissue defect. Also disclosed is a method that places the suture loop in a full-thickness stitch encircling the tissue defect, secures the ends of the suture loop to the clasp, and cinches the suture loop to approximate the tissue without the need to tie knots. Also disclosed is a suture passer that enables a suture strand or loop to be passed through the tissue wall, captured, and retrieved. The suture passer may optionally incorporate a clasp in such an arrangement that enables a suture loop passed through the tissue wall to be captured directly by the clasp.
