The winners of the New Champions Awards 2022 are changing the world — here’s how
From food security to education to healthcare, these medium-sized businesses, winners of the New Champions Awards 2022, are changing the world. Here’s how.
Xenco Medical is a medical device manufacturer that has pioneered a new category of surgical implant systems with its sterile-packaged spinal implants pre-attached to disposable, polymer-based delivery instruments. Outperforming reused implant systems in consistency, the risk of pathogen transmission, and in eliminating the expensive processes associated with sterilization of reprocessed instruments and implants, Xenco Medical’s devices have been found to save hospitals 900 to 1100 dollars per surgery. With the sterile-packaged, composite polymer instruments and spinal implants attached together in each package, the single-use Xenco Medical implant systems are designed to both increase efficiency in the operating room as well as eliminate the internal logistics associated with the autoclave process. Existing at the intersection of materials science and mechanical engineering, Xenco Medical’s single-use spinal systems are the first polymer-based devices of their kind. Xenco Medical has also become the first spinal implant manufacturer to make its instruments and implants available through surgical vending machines.
