WARSAW, Ind., October 7, 2020 – Zimmer Biomet will be showcasing its latest commercial offerings and previewing its next generation of technological innovations at the North American Spine Society (NASS) Annual Meeting: Virtual Experience, October 6 through 9.
“In addition to our ongoing commitment to advancing our implant offerings, Zimmer Biomet is transforming the Spine patient journey with the introduction of a digital care management platform called mymobility® with Apple Watch at this year’s NASS meeting,” said Jim Cloar, President, Spine.
“In our discussions with spine surgeons about mymobility with Apple Watch, they are excited about the data collection capabilities and the ability to connect and engage with patients through an automated platform,” said Liane Teplitsky, Vice President and General Manager of Technology and Data Solutions. “Overall, we’ve found that patients prefer a more connected experience and surgeons are looking for an efficient way to provide it to them.”
mymobility with Apple Watch

Mobi-C® Cervical Disc (Mobi-C), is the first cervical disc replacement FDA approved for both one and two-level indications. Designed to restore segmental motion and disc height, Mobi-C was approved after an extensive Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) study. In the two-level arm of the IDE, Mobi-C demonstrated superiority in overall trial success compared to fusion at 84 months. Zimmer Biomet Spine is committed to advancing cervical arthroplasty as the standard of care in indicated patients.
TrellOss™ Porous Ti Interbody System
TrellOss is a family of 3D printed titanium interbodies featuring a scaffold structure with 70 percent porosity and a seven micron roughened surface topography to foster a cellular relevant environment for adhesion and bone ingrowth1. The TrellOss platform includes TrellOss-C (cervical), TrellOss-C SA (Cervical stand-alone), TrellOss-TC (TLIF curved), TrellOss-TS (TLIF straight), TrellOss-L (Lateral) and TrellOss-A (ALIF).
Zimmer Biomet's anterior vertebral body tethering (AVBT) solution, The Tether, provides an alternative to fusion for young patients requiring surgery for scoliosis. The Tether uses a strong, flexible cord to pull on the outside of a scoliosis curve to initially straighten the spine, while the inside of the curve is left free to grow. Unlike fusion alternatives, The Tether is positioned utilizing an endoscopic minimally invasive approach through a few small openings between the ribs.
