The Future of Cervical Arthroplasty
Simplify Disc Description
Clinically Successful Design
Simplify Disc Key Features & Benefits
Simplify Disc features two PEEK endplates articulating on a ceramic composite core. The bone contacting surface of each endplate is coated with biocompatible porous titanium to promote stable bony ongrowth2.
Designed for MRI
Anatomic in Design
Designed to Conform to Patient Anatomy
Simplify Disc maximum range of motion without anatomic constraint:
Designed with Lordosis Options
Simplify Disc is available in 0 and 5 degrees lordosis. The lordotic option may benefit patient’s with naturally lordotic cervical discs.
Mobile Bearing Design Closely Replicates Range of Motion
Published clinical data shows mobile bearing design disc maintained motion over time.
Designed for Durability
“PEEK-OPTIMA particles were more biocompatible than UHMWPE.” 1
The MRI Advantage
“MRI is considered the ideal screening method for investigation of patients with cervical myelopathy or radiculopathy, and is preferred to CT and myelography due to its high soft tissue contrast discrimination and noninvasiveness.”
– Sundseth J, et al. Eur Spine J 2013.3
“The average effective dose in cervical spine CTs is 5.0 mSv, which is the equivalent of 400 chest X-rays.”
– Linet MS, et al. CA Cancer J Clin 2012.4
