About LimiFlex

The LimiFlex Paraspinous Tension Band is a new, investigational device designed as an alternative to spinal fusion for patients receiving surgical decompression for grade 1 lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis with spinal stenosis.  LimiFlex does not involve any screws or bone grafts, which eliminate the natural motion between spine segments.  Instead, LimiFlex is designed to stabilize the spine without fusing it, thereby preserving motion. The device works by supporting and enhancing the spine's natural biomechanics with stabilizing yet flexible elements.  The LimiFlex device is placed following a standard decompression surgery, typically in less than 30 minutes.

About Empirical Spine

Empirical Spine, Inc., founded in 2015, is a privately held company developing advanced solutions for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders.  The company is currently running a pivotal IDE trial in the US on its breakthrough, motion-preserving Paraspinous Tension Band, LimiFlex.  LimiFlex is a minimally invasive implant that stabilizes the spine after decompression surgery yet preserves motion. 

Caution: The LimiFlex Paraspinous Tension Band is an investigational device in the United States and is limited by law to investigational use.
