HOFFMAN ESTATES, Illinois — Orthopedic device company Life Spine has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for two spinal systems.

Each of the systems use what the company calls a “zero-step locking mechanism” and devices designed to reduce surgical steps and complexity during surgery, according to a statement from the company.

The first item, the company’s Dyna-Link system, features a titanium-polymer device that allows for the use of fixed- or variable-angle screws. The second item, called the Presidio, is a spinal plating system made of titanium.

Last year, the company also received 510(k) clearance for what it said was the first of several minimally invasive spinal systems it plans to bring to market.
