Life Spine Announces Initiation of SIMPACT® Sacroiliac Joint Fixation Outcomes Study

HUNTLEY, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops,
manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal
disorders, announces the initiation of the SIMPACT Sacroiliac Joint (SI)
Fixation Outcomes Study, with Dr. Keith Maxwell of Southeastern Sports
Medicine and Orthopedics in Asheville, North Carolina.

SIMPACT is a cannulated and fenestrated screw, intended for sacroiliac
joint fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and
degenerative sacroiliitis through a lateral approach. SIMPACT also
incorporates the proprietary surface technology OSSEO-LOC™, and is
available in multiple lengths to accommodate varying patient anatomy.

Mariusz Knap, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for
Life Spine said: “SIMPACT joins our recently released PROLIFT®
Expandable Outcomes Study, further demonstrating our commitment to
providing robust investment into clinical studies which evaluate the
safety and efficacy of our products. As well as adding to the body of
data validating our state-of-the-art product offering, these studies
will demonstrate possible medical economic savings and highlight other
advantages associated with new technologies such as SIMPACT.”

Dr. Keith Maxwell who is the principal investigator for the study notes,
“With more than 22% of lower back pain originating from the sacroiliac
joint1, the market for SI joint fixation continues to grow as
better diagnostic tools and better understanding of the pathology
evolve. SIMPACT has streamlined the SI joint fixation procedure for me
and my patients by creating a screw design that is self-drilling,
resulting in fewer surgical steps. I continue to see excellent results
in treating sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis,
and we expect these results to continue throughout the course of this
study.”
