Current methods for placement of pedicle screws
in the vertebrae are complicated and time consuming. They require
the time to penetrate the cortex, probe the pedicle and confirm
proper insertion position and orientation.
SafePath is an FDA registered, patented disposable
bone drill designed to facilitate a safe, fast, accurate and reliable
nucleation within the pedicle. In conjunction with the custom inserter,
SafePath will self center while taking the path of least resistance,
providing a nucleus from the posterior anatomical recesses to the
vertebral body. Consequently, SafePath serves as a temporary intra-operative
radiographic bone marker and bone anchor when used with Mekanika's
