HUNTLEY, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops,
manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal
disorders, announced today that the company received ten 510(k)

of life. This year, receiving ten 510(k) clearances will help us to

One key 510(k) clearance that Life Spine secured in 2018 was for the

sacroiliac screw that was designed to reduce procedural time, decrease
trauma to the surrounding muscles and lessen recovery time by utilizing
a minimally invasive approach. SIMPACT® features Life Spine’s
proprietary OSSEO-LOC® surface technology and a self-drilling
and self-tapping design.
Another notable clearance for Life Spine in 2018 was the PLATEAU®-LO
Spacer System which is a PEEK interbody designed with an oblique
lordosis to better suit patient anatomy. The system’s “Insert and
Rotate” design allows for restoration of disc height and sagittal
alignment, even in severely collapsed disc spaces.
