Freedom Lumbar Disc
- Viscoelastic core provides stability while simulating the capabilities of healthy human disc
- Intended to facilitate the relief of lower back pain and restoration of normal spinal function for patients with DDD
- One-piece design simplifies surgical implantation
- Rails and bead-coated titanium endplates keep device securely in place
The Freedom® Lumbar Disc (FLD) is intended to replace degenerated lumbar. The FLD polymer core is designed to provide the kind of stiffness similar to that found in healthy human discs. The viscoelastic core of the FLD responds to different loads and loading rates the way a human spine does. 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 Disc is designed to withstand the forces and wear characterised by decades of use as an implant in relatively young patients.
