NuVasive to Highlight Its Enabling Technologies at NASS

The Pulse platform is an integrated technology system designed to improve a surgeon's ability to utilize minimally invasive surgical techniques, which have been shown to reduce blood loss, hospital stays and result in less operative morbidity compared to open spine surgery. 

NuVasive, Inc. announced the Company will highlight its enabling technologies at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting, September 25-28, 2019 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“As part of NuVasive’s commitment to transform surgery, at NASS we will showcase enabling technologies that help surgeons perform less invasive spine procedures,” said Matt Link, president of NuVasive. “Key to this foundation is Pulse, the first and only system to integrate multiple technologies in a single expandable platform designed for all spine procedures. As part of this platform, we look forward to unveiling Pulse Robotics, an application that introduces automation while maintaining surgeon control to optimize clinical decision making and deliver better patient outcomes.”

NuVasive’s booth #2411 will feature the X360™ system, a comprehensive approach to lateral single-position surgery, powered by the Pulse® platform. The Company will also showcase its comprehensive Advanced Materials Science® implant portfolio, which now includes cervical offerings and a full portfolio for all TLIF procedures, and Reline® fixation system updates along with other procedural technologies. NuVasive will unveil its Pulse Robotics application at an invitation-only event and host hands-on demonstrations in a private technology suite, showcasing how Pulse Robotics seamlessly integrates with the Pulse platform.

The Pulse platform is an integrated technology system designed to improve a surgeon’s ability to utilize minimally invasive surgical techniques, which have been shown to reduce blood loss, hospital stays and result in less operative morbidity compared to open spine surgery. The Pulse platform combines multiple enabling technologies to improve workflow, reduce variability, and increase the reproducibility of surgical outcomes, including neuromonitoring, surgical planning, rod bending, radiation reduction, imaging and navigation functions.

The Pulse platform’s modular architecture was developed to be expandable to allow for future technology applications, including robotics and smart tools.1 The Pulse Robotics application has been designed to allow surgeons to perform robotic-assisted spine surgery with some key features, including:

  • An extensible architecture to support multiple procedural applications, including X360 and posterior screw placement;
  • Allows for optimized surgeon control with real-time adjustments to enhance autonomy;
  • Dynamic, real-time feedback, leveraging other applications on the Pulse platform to facilitate clinical decision making; and
  • A flexible mobile cart that is efficient to set up and configures to the existing operating room.

NuVasive’s development of Pulse with Pulse Robotics is part of the Company’s commitment to provide surgeons with enabling technologies that help improve the standard of spine care through less invasive surgery.
