AMB Surgical — Flyte
AMB Surgical’s Flyte device is an automated growing rod technology meant to reduce invasive and repetitive surgery in pediatric patients with scoliosis and limb abnormalities.
The company’s founder Casel Burnett is a mechanical engineer who saw his own daughter facing repeated surgeries for her scoliosis.
“The intelligent sensing embedded in this technology has true transformative potential. In addition, this technology has the promise to ultimately provide self-adjustment, a feature which could greatly improve outcomes through highly individualized patient treatment plans,” Jenell Robinson, MSN, RN, VP of clinical value and provider relations at MedTech Innovator, said.
AMB Surgical describes Flyte as an “electro-mechanical, software-activated device to provide real-time biomechanical feedback to guide treatment allowing surgeons to perform accurate, non-surgical skeletal adjustments.”
“Scoliosis can be treated early and efficaciously. Yet, families have to often travel overseas to benefit from technologies that are not yet approved in the U.S.,” said Eskandanian at NCC-PDI.
