Spine Disposable Instruments & Procedural Kits

The spine implant market is changing fast. Driven by hospital and ASC cost cutting, CMS and payor reimbursement changes, heated competition and the race to capture emerging market share, every OEM implant company is looking for an edge. A growing outpatient market is requiring expansion of capacity based on improved outcomes. Hospitals and ASCs want lower cost implant products and even generic solutions while maintaining high quality standards and improved patient safety.

ECA Medical Instruments is helping OEMs manage through this change and transform healthcare economics. Our procedural kits, for example, can save OEMs over $1,000 per implant procedure and the industry over $1 billion per year by eliminating reprocessing costs and improving OR efficiency. ECA Medical Instruments is leading the conversion to single-use spine instruments and full procedural kits for cervical, thoracolumbar, lumbar, sacral joint, facet screw and other open and MIS procedures. OEMs, surgeons, hospitals and ASCs are now enjoying the sustained benefits of disposable torque-limiters, fixed-driver instruments and turnkey procedural kits. They include:

  • Increased implant sales with sterile packed, surgery ready instrument kits
  • Lower upfront and life cycle costs
  • Guaranteed precision torque for every implant procedure
