MEKANIKA JOINS WITH FAU,
MOVES TO LARGER HEADQUARTERS

(Boca Raton, FL) - Mekanika, Inc., "The Spinal Stabilization Company," is exploring joint ventures with Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in a number of new surgical educational programs.

The larger, expanded offices are needed to support the additional staffing required for the launch of the Mekanika Spinal Stabilization System into the $8 billion worldwide spinal implant market. The new offices on the FAU campus will be used to start manufacturing and expand product development, with the possible support from FAU engineering department resources and students.

Mekanika expects leading spine surgeons worldwide to visit their facility and attend planned surgeon education programs, which will build a further reputation for FAU and Mekanika's spinal technology and educational expertise. It will also help stimulate the growth of medical technology in Palm Beach County.

Mekanika's FDA cleared Spinal Stiffness Gauge (SSG) measures spine joint stability and gives surgeons the first truly accurate diagnostic tool for determining whether spinal fusion is warranted. Other products include the FDA registered SafePath™ Bone Drill which can be used with the SSG™ and is a patented, disposable drill designed to facilitate a safe, fast, accurate and reliable nucleation within the pedicle. Mekanika has two patented breakthrough carbon fiber devices being developed for clinical testing: the Rigid Implantable Spinal Assist Device™ (RISAD)-a stronger, lighter easier to implant spinal fusion device-and the Compliant Implantable Spinal Assist Device™ (CISAD), which gives surgeons the alternative of stabilizing the spine without fusion, maintaining joint flexibility.
