AMB Surgical: Reducing repetitive surgeries for children with scoliosis
AMB Surgical describes its Flyte device as an automated growing rod technology meant to reduce invasive and repetitive surgery in pediatric patients with scoliosis and limb abnormalities.
Company founder Casel Burnett is a mechanical engineer who saw his own daughter facing repeated surgeries for her scoliosis. The device is electro-mechanical and software-activated, providing real-time feedback surgeons need to perform non-surgical skeletal adjustments, according to the company.
AMB Surgical was among five winners of the latest “Make Your Medical Device Pitch for Kids!” competition, held by the National Capital Consortium for Pediatric Device Innovation.
