Moving the Industry Beyond Surface Technology and Into Mechanobiology

Mechanobiology

Mech•an•o•bi•ol•o•gy
(Noun)

The emerging field of science at the interface of biology and engineering that focuses on how physical forces and changes in the mechanical properties of cells and tissues contribute to development, cell differentiation, proliferation, and healing.

Hierarchical Surface Roughness

Spans from the macro to nano scale. These surface features have been shown to stimulate increased gene expression of certain osteogenic markers when compared to other interbody surfaces and materials3.

Open architecture Design

Allows for greater graft volume and bone growth throughout the entire construct.

Truss Implant design

Provides maximum strength with a minimal amount of material, which limits imaging artifacts.

Optimized Load distribution

Distribution of load through the implant struts delivers strain to adjacent cellular material which stimulates a mechanobiologic response1,2,9.

Novel Snowshoe Interface

Provides a Snowshoe Interface that distributes load across the endplate minimizing point loading and reducing the risk of subsidence4,5,6,7,8.

Hierarchical Surface Roughness

Surrounds every strut in the truss implant, providing a scaffold for cell adhesion and osteogenesis throughout the entire fusion column.

The 4WEB Difference

The 4WEB key differentiator remains the proprietary truss design that provides a more stimulative and stable environment for fusion than competitive annular designs across the industry1,2,9.

4WEB’s hierarchical surface roughness has been shown to provide an environment that allows for bone growth and fusion3

Additionally, in vitro testing has also shown that stem cells cultured in an osteogenic medium demonstrate increased expression of certain osteogenic markers on 4WEB’s titanium hierarchical surface roughness compared to smooth titanium and smooth PEEK3.

Please note that in vitro and in vivo testing may not be indicative of clinical performance.
