Wake Forest, NC – September 24, 2018 – Tobra Medical Inc., a specialty medical device company focused on autograft bone and specimen collection, today announced the national launch of the Tobra Bone Basket, a user friendly, continuous filtration, mesh basket system that maximizes collection of autograft bone during high speed bone drilling, for use as a bone graft. The national launch of the Tobra Bone Basket coincides with the exhibit debut (Booth #1163) at this week’s North American Spine Society (NASS) meeting in Los Angeles, CA.
“During the past six-month, market focused pilot launch, spine surgeons have consistently commented that the Tobra Bone Basket is easy to use, does not interrupt their surgery, and collects a tremendous amount of autograft bone. Additionally, the handling characteristics of the collected autograft bone output are workable, moldable and manageable for spine surgeons,” said Tobra Medical Founder and President Brad Collins.
Mr. Collins continued, “Hospitals, surgery centers, hospital networks, and group purchasing organizations have welcomed the Tobra Bone Basket due to its economic value and cost savings associated with the reduction and elimination of expensive allograft bone substitutes in use today . The Tobra Bone Basket assists the surgeon’s need for providing autologous bone to the fusion process and to the facility’s interest in reducing cost for expensive allograft bone substitutes.”
The key component of the patented Tobra Bone Basket is the unique removeable mesh basket. The size and pattern of the mesh basket has been specifically designed and tested to capture drilled bone particles, while allowing for a continuous non-stop filtration of blood and irrigation fluids. The 25mL mesh basket is removable for easy transport of autograft bone with minimal direct handling of bone output. The inversion capability of the mesh basket ensures complete retrieval of all bone particles, thus maximizing the output with little to no waste. The Tobra Bone Basket plunger helps to further assist bone particle separation when pressed by eliminating excess fluid from autograft bone and allowing for a workable output that is easy to use and manipulate.
