Curiteva receives FDA 510(k) clearance for 3D Printed PEEK implant

 Technology company Curiteva has been granted an FDA 510(k) clearance for a 3D printed PEEK implant, the Inspire Porous PEEK Cervical Interbody System with HAFUSE Technology.

The Inspire platform is manufactured with a proprietary, patented Fused Filament Fabrication 3D-printer designed, programmed, and built by Curiteva. This groundbreaking additive process produces a fully interconnected and integrated porous structure traversing the entire implant to promote osseointegration, improve radiographic assessment, and deliver superior biomechanics.

The first-to-market combination of the HAFUSE nanotechnology surface treatment and novel porous PEEK structure creates a hydrophilic, bioactive environment for cell attachment, proliferation, and healing in preclinical animal and in vitro studies.

According to co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer Eric Linder, the Inspire implant technology incorporates an engineered lattice structure with fully interconnected porosity exhibiting superior mechanical strength and achieving a modulus of elasticity closely matching human cancellous bone.

Our capability to integrate unique design elements utilizing additive PEEK as an alternative to titanium to optimize beneficial material properties such as radiographic assessment and biomechanical load-sharing represents a significant leap forward in the design and development of medical devices,” added Vice President of Emerging Technology Todd Reith.

The company now plans a commercial launch in key academic centers across the United States.

Curiteva is pioneering 3D printing of porous PEEK implants with a bioactive surface to revolutionize how engineered structures and implant biomaterials enhance healing and improve patient outcomes. We are uniquely positioned to control the product development process of traditional implants and 3D-printed devices from inception to commercialization and scale to meet market demand inside our 35,000-square-foot production facility in Huntsville,” stated CEO Mike English.
