LDR Partners with Poly-Shape to Build Spinal Implants With Additive Manufacturing

Poly-Shape, a French manufacturing company specializing in laser sintering, entered into an exclusive agreement with LDR. The agreement combines LDR’s spinal focus and approach to implant design with Poly-Shape’s proprietary, additive manufacturing methods.

The agreement was signed in 4Q15. Initial projects are underway, with the expectation to launch newly-designed spinal implants produced with Poly-Shape technology as early as mid-2017.

Financial terms of the investment and agreement were not disclosed.

BONEZONE discussed LDR’s growth strategy and future plans with LDR President and CEO Christophe Lavigne in September 2015. Lavigne says cervical disc will be one of the bigger opportunity areas in the spine market for the next five or so years, but the overall spine market will be limited by cost-containment pressures.
