PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced is a material enhancement in spinal device technology. Hydroxyapatite (HA), a well-known Osteoconductive material, is fully integrated(not coated) with PEEK-OPTIMA Natural, making it available on all surfaces of a device. This results in a strong, versatile and highly effective biomaterial that offers a superior solution for bone apposition.

The main benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA™ HA Enhanced include all the benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA Natural plus Hydroxyapatite (HA), to encourage bone in-growth.

  • HA is integrated, not coated, making it available on all surfaces of a finished device.
  • Enhances bone apposition
  • Fully integrated HA compound eliminates time and expense of applying a surface coating
