HydroxyApatite Porous PEEK

The HAPPE Spine Story

Hydroxyapatite Porous PEEK

More than a decade ago, we envisioned that modifying PEEK to be both porous and bioactive would provide an ideal implant material solution for interbody spinal fusion. At that time, the market was not yet prepared for this innovation.

As surgeons are now recognizing the advantages of recently released implants utilizing bioactive hydroxyapatite enhanced PEEK or surface-porous PEEK, we are excited to combine both innovations into the same device, just as we envisioned more than a decade ago.

Patented Dual-Density™ Design

Dense HA-PEEK for load bearing

Porous HA-PEEK for osteointegration

Hydroxyapatite Porous PEEK (HAPPE), when fabricated through our proprietary technology, provides for the optimal mechanical properties of PEEK polymer materials, while providing improved surface texture inviting boney engagement, interconnected porosity for long term fixation, and the bioactive properties of HA to provide an effective construct for bone ingrowth. The HA further improves mechanical properties compared to standard PEEK, and all together, optimizes imaging for post operative diagnosis.
