dynamic stabilization

An integrated function of neuromuscular systems requiring muscles to contract and fixate the body against fluctuating outside forces, providing postural support with fine adjustments in muscle tension. The term usually pertains to a function of the trunk, shoulder, and hip muscles and includes the lower extremity muscles when they are functioning in a closed chain.

TORONTO -- According to Millennium Research Group (MRG), the global authority on medical technology market intelligence, the market for pedicle screw-based dynamic stabilization systems, already under pressure from the lack of FDA approval for nonfusion indications and 522 postmarket data requirements, will undergo a more significant contraction through 2015 due to the failure of Applied Spine Technologies to move forward with its anticipated spinal nonfusion product, Stabilimax.
Devices covered: Spinal fusion implants (traditional thoracolumbar and cervical implants, nonbone interbody devices (IBDs), machined bone IBDs ((where applicable), and corpectomy devices) and spinal nonfusion technologies (pedicle screw-based dynamic stabilization systems, interspinous process decompression devices, cervical artificial discs, lumbar artificial discs, nuclear disc prostheses, annulus repair systems, and facet arthroplasty systems)
a privately held company specialized in developing a dynamic stabilization system for the spine.
To be clinically useful, a dynamic stabilization device needs to allow the spine to move, but not move excessively," said Bruce Robie, PhD, Vice President of Research and Development for Applied Spine.
