The DSG™ Technology is based on the principle that the electrical conductivity of tissue varies by the type of tissue: cortical bone, cancellous bone,
This parameter of varying conductivity can be very helpful in differentiating between various tissue types while drilling. SpineGuard’s PediGuard® probe work through a bipolar sensor that is embedded at its tip. A current is pulsed through two electrodes in the probe, and based on the local conductivity the sensor can accurately inform the surgeon of the type of tissue the tip is in.
Adin and SpineGuard have already identified three specific dental applications for DSG™: a Sinus Lift Smart Osteotome, a Zygomatic Smart Trocar and a Dental Smart Drill for a potential of 8 million dental procedures. Among other things, the deal between the two companies includes technology transfer, product development support, upfront, milestones and royalty payments.
“The collaboration with SpineGuard is an important step to making this innovative technology accessible to Adin’s patients and doctors, which form Adin’s client-base. Adin is wholeheartedly committed to
“This licensing agreement is a big step forward for SpineGuard as it demonstrates the potential of our DSG™ technology beyond spine surgery,” added Pierre Jérôme,
“Modern Dental Implantology is derived and developed from the orthopedic field due to the immense contribution of Prof. Per-Ingvar Brånemark. It is only obvious and expected that the technologies of Adin and SpineGuard complement and synergize with one another. Both teams are confident and determined to open new treatment options that will allow surgeons to perform complex surgeries in both accurate and minimally invasive ways.
“We look forward to implementing and expanding the DSG™ technology in maxillofacial applications, and are committed to improving the treatment options,
Founded in 2009 in France and the USA, by Pierre Jérôme and Stéphane Bette, SpineGuard’s mission is to make spine surgery safer by bringing real-time digital technology into the operating room. Its primary objective is to establish its proprietary DSG™ (Dynamic Surgical Guidance) technology as the global standard of surgical care, starting with safer screw placement in spine surgery and then in other surgeries. PediGuard®, the first device designed using DSG, was co-invented by Maurice Bourlion, Ph.D., Ciaran Bolger, M.D., Ph.D., and Alain Vanquaethem, Biomedical Engineer. It is the world’s first and only handheld device capable of alerting surgeons to potential pedicular or vertebral breaches. Over 50,000 surgical procedures have been performed worldwide with DSG™ enabled devices. Numerous studies published in peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals have demonstrated the multiple benefits that PediGuard® delivers to patients, surgical
