Pioneer(R) Surgical Technology Announces First Human Implants of its NuNec(TM) Cervical Arthroplasty Device
Date:5/2/2008

, biodurability, radiolucency, and excellent wear resistance of this technology provide surgeons with the most technologically advanced design in the industry which we believe will lead to reduced operating room times and better patient outcomes."

Earlier this year, Pioneer announced significant findings on the effect of accelerated aging on the wear of PEEK (Poly-ether-ether-ketone). The study, conducted in collaboration with RUSH University in Chicago, determined that wear properties of PEEK-on-PEEK are not susceptible to the effects of accelerated aging. The study bolsters support for the long term durability of the company's P3 designs.
