I look forward to continuing to collaborate with M-PED, who continues to pursue innovative solutions to conditions that affect children. MC3 brings experience in product development and commercialization, which can help the innovators' device concepts reach the market.
Sourced from Medical Design Technology (www.mdtmag.com):
"The MAGEC Spinal Growing Rod is a minimally-invasive treatment for
children with early onset scoliosis. After the initial procedure to
implant the rod, doctors use an external remote control outside of the
body to lengthen the magnetically controlled rod as a child grows.
Traditional treatment uses rods that require surgeries about twice a
year to manually lengthen the rod while a child is still growing. With
the growing rod, the rod is magnetically controlled with the external
remote control, so Stony Brook Medicine orthopedic surgeons can lengthen
the rod in a non-invasive way during a child’s course of treatment."
