The Intralink-Spine custom medical device quickly adds polymer "nano-tethers" in the tissue matrix to provide a mechanically stable, stronger, and tear-resistant tissue. Thus, it could become a replacement for spinal fusions, disc replacements, and nerve ablation surgeries, and it could be an effective adjunct to common surgical procedures such as discectomies.
Introducing Our Core Technology
A key to our injectable treatment's effectiveness is the device's ability to add a large number of load-supporting polymers to a damaged collagen matrix like that in a degraded spinal disc.
Disc degeneration is happening to all of us; for most of us it can cause pain!
Annulus tissue becomes delaminated, fissured, or micro-damaged
Spinal joint becomes unstable
Disc bulges against nerves
Our medical device reduces pain by:
Strengthening annulus against tearing and delamination
Increasing joint stability
Reducing disc bulge
Our unique solution is effectively protected
There are more than forty (40) issued patents to date with additional under review. Our innovation is also supported by thirty-two (32) peer-reviewed papers.
This nano-tethering polymeric device, GENTIS (GEnipin Nano-Tether Injectable Stabilization), is implanted via a standard image-guided injection. This micro-invasive procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis and should be complete with just one injection treatment.
