Based in Frisco, TX, 4WEB Medical is an implant device company founded in 2008. Thirty years of research in topological dimension theory led to the discovery of a novel geometry, the “4WEB”, which could be used as a building block to create high-strength, lightweight web structures. The company took advantage of this breakthrough, along with cutting-edge 3D printing technology, to develop the 4WEB Medical proprietary implant platform.
The 4WEB geometry leverages multidisciplinary engineering principles such as truss design, load transfer and adjacent material reaction to produce orthopedic implants that actively participate in the healing process. The company’s truss designs are built to provide superior strength and promote osseous incorporation, guiding bone formation through structural mechanics rather than through the use of expensive biologics.
4WEB’s initial focus was on the spine implant market but it soon became clear the 4WEB truss implant technology could be used as a broad platform to develop an array of products across the entire orthopedic arena. The designs can be applied to any orthopedic procedure requiring structural support where the patient will benefit from optimal porosity and osseous incorporation. The 4WEB product portfolio offers comprehensive surgical solutions to neurosurgeons, orthopedic spine surgeons, and foot and ankle surgeons.
4WEB Medical offers the following FDA-cleared implant systems:
