Overview

SMS (Stabilise with Motion Support):

SMS is a lumbar stabilisation implant designed to stabilise the spine, off-load the pressure on the disc and restore the normal biomechanics to the segment.

The patent pending SMS (Stabilise with Motion Support) device and instruments have been developed to make the implant as safe and easy to use as possible.

It is much more than an interspinous spacer, that simply opens up the foramen, and is indeed a lumbar stabilisation system that works in both flexion and extension.
