The elastic modulus of Vigor« Plus polymer may be adapted to closely match cortical bone.  This characteristic significantly reduces the phenomenon of stress shielding, and thus promotes better bone growth fusion.

Radiolucency under X-ray, Computer Tomography or MRI examination for better visualization of bone tissue integration around the fusion site.  MRI technologies can be employed to scan patients which had a Vigor« Plus implant, since it is non-magnetic. 

Independent laboratories have performed biocompatibility and biostability testing relevant ISO 10993 and USP Class VI procedures, which have shown excellent results.  Vigor« Plus is a high performance biomaterial providing advanced solutions for implant manufacturers.Vigor« Plus polymer can be repeatedly sterilized using conventional sterilization methods including steam, gamma radiation and ethylene oxide processes without the degradation of its mechanical properties or biocompatibility.
