Freedom Lumbar Disc Features

A HUMAN DESIGN

The Freedom® Lumbar Disc (FLD) and Freedom® Cervical Disc (FCD) are intended to replace degenerated lumbar or cervical discs. The FLD and FCD polymer cores are designed to provide the kind of stiffness similar to that found in healthy human discs. Like human discs, the cores are viscoelastic, which means they respond to different loads and loading rates the way a human spine does.

Freedom Lumbar Disc Features

A MATERIAL ADVANTAGE

The material characteristics of the polymer used in all Freedom® Discs, in combination with their design, provide both stability and three-dimensional motion that biomechanical testing has shown functions within the natural biomechanics of the spine. The Freedom® Lumbar and Cervical Discs are designed to withstand the forces and wear characterized by decades of use as an implant in relatively young patients.

AN INTERDISCIPLINARY TEAM

The Freedom® Lumbar and Freedom® Cervical Discs were developed and designed by a first-class team of spine surgeon partners, engineers, and expert scientists in biomechanics, pathology, spine surgery and polymer science. The company has successfully completed extensive biomechanical and biocompatibility evaluations of the Freedom® Cervical and Lumbar Discs.

Freedom Lumbar Disc Features

Responds to loading like the human spine

Moves in three dimensions like the human spine

Withstands the forces and wear of decades of use

Polymer core has flexibility and stiffness that mimics a healthy human disc

Freedom Lumbar Disc Features

Viscoelastic core provides stability while simulating the capabilities of a healthy human disc.

Freedom Lumbar Disc Features

Intended to facilitate the relief of neck pain and restoration of normal spinal function for patients with DDD.

Freedom Lumbar Disc Features

One-piece design simplifies surgical implantation.

Freedom Lumbar Disc Features

Rails and bead-coated titanium endplates keep device securely in place.

Testing shows that the Freedom® Cervical Disc can survive up to 50 years of walking loads and 80 years of significant bends with no changes to device performance.
