The Lobster® spacer device is an interspinous spacer that allows for percutaneous interspinous distraction for indirect decompression of the lumbar degenerative stenosis.
The system consists of a cylindrical body made of titanium and coated by a central saddle available in three different constructive configurations (PEEK, Titanium or Medical grade Silicone).
The Lobster® is also equipped with patented wings opening/closing mechanism that allows potential removal of the spacer even when the device has been positioned with the wings opened.
The Lobster® design is characterized by a special geometrical shape that limits the spine extension and reduces stress on the facet joints. The wrap-around wings on the spinous processes ensure stability and prevent any dislocations.
