K2M Group Holdings Inc., a medical device company that designs and develops spine and minimally invasive solutions, highlighted its Balance ACS platform to aid surgeons at the 2017 combined meeting of the European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society and the Pediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America (EPOSNA) on May 3-6 in Barcelona, Spain.
The goal of Balance ACS is to offer solutions to balance the spine by supporting anatomical vertebral segments individually with a 360-degree method to the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes, K2M said in a press release.
"K2M is excited to participate in this year's EPOSNA, a keynote meeting encompassing the latest science, education, and advocacy to improve surgical care in children across Europe and North America with spinal deformities," Eric Major, K2M President and CEO, said in a press release.
“We look forward to further introducing Balance ACS – a comprehensive platform of products, services, and research – to surgeons across Europe and North America," Major said. "With BACS, our goal is to help surgeons holistically manage the entire patient experience over the full episodic care continuum, and ultimately, achieve Total Body Balance for spine patients.”
On May 4, K2M also hosted an interactive clinical symposium, "Techniques to Optimize Spinal Balance," which was facilitated by Dennis Devito, MD, director of the spine program at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
