NGMedical GmbH located in Germany has announced the worldwide first implantations of its new MOVE-C disc prosthesis. After receiving CE approval end of December 2019, the first MOVE-C cervical disc prostheses were implanted in January. The well thought through instrument set and the anatomical design of MOVE-C were crucial for the smooth surgeries. MOVE-C combines the features of a second generation disc prosthesis with the simple implantation technique of a cervical cage. The prosthesis offers physiological motion in all 6 planes including axial damping with progressive resistance to motion. Furthermore, MOVE-C is the first prosthesis with additively manufactured titanium endplates and avoids the use of PE.

In the near future, the new cervical BEE cage with a sophisticated honeycomb structure, which is purely manufactured additively, will be available.
