Facet Solutions' AFRS(TM) Demonstrates Biomechanical Advantages Over Dynamic Stabilization in Independent Testing
Date:10/22/2007

milar to hip and knee joint replacement devices.

Recent studies have shown that the constrained nature of dynamic stabilization increases screw stresses. This increase may have contributed to the higher rates of screw loosening and resulted in limited range of motion. The objective of the biomechanical testing was to determine if the use of an unconstrained implant could potentially eliminate the disadvantages of dynamic stabilization.

Eric Bannon, VP of Clinical and Regulatory Affairs, stated, "The AFRS(TM) was designed with the objective of overcoming the inherent weaknesses of spinal fusion and dynamic stabilization. As a company, we felt it was important to invest in this stringent testing procedure to ensure that the AFRS(TM) would result in positive clinical outcomes. We were pleased to find that our product outperformed spinal fusion and dynamic stabilization in several key areas. The company looks forward to expanding this biomechanical outcome data with results from an ongoing FDA approved IDE Study."

The summary findings from this biomechanical testing will be presented at the Science of Facet Joint Repair and Total Posterior Arthroplasty Symposium which will be held in Austin, Texas at the Omni Hotel on Monday, October 22, 2007 at 6:30 PM.

* Note: AFRS(TM) is an investigational device in the United States. It is

limited by United States (U.S.) Federal Law for investigational use

only.
