1.- 4WEB Medical
4WEB Medical is an implant device company founded in 2008 in Dallas, Texas. Thirty years of research in topological dimension theory led to the discovery of a novel geometry, the 4WEB, that can be used as a building block to create high-strength, lightweight web structures. The company leveraged this breakthrough along with cutting-edge 3D printing technology to develop 4WEB Medical’s proprietary truss implant platform.
4WEB’s proprietary open architecture truss design increases endplate to implant contact maximizing resistance to subsidence. The additive manufacturing process used to produce the proprietary truss implant technology creates a hierarchical surface roughness spanning from the nano to macro scale which improves initial fixation, provides a stable environment for bone growth, and stimulates the osteogenic nature of the implant design.
The 4WEB Medical product portfolio for spine includes the Cervical Spine Truss System, the Anterior Spine Truss System, the Posterior Spine Truss System, the Lateral Spine Truss System and the Osteotomy Truss System. 4WEB is actively developing truss implant designs for knee, hip, trauma and patient specific orthopedic procedures. https://4webmedical.com
