  • Existing orthopedic implants such as pedicle screw and spinal cage were designed to fix the spinal structure. But, nowadays, physicians want to rehabilitate there original functions. To achieve this request, we studied micro-movable structure for interspinous. As a first step, we designed interspinous structure by 3D CAD to join each spinous processes. Next, we simulate it with various factors such as the thickness of micro-movement structure and the design of clip. At last, we performed static compressive test to satisfy the failure load of 339N and dynamic endurance test of 1.2M cycle. As a result, we developed interspinous implant and did several surgery to evaluated its satisfaction.
