OmniLIF : “Expandalone” Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion Device

There are over 413,000 spinal fusions in the United States every year, but almost 39% of those procedures require future revisions. Many of these revisions stem from the fact that proper sagittal balance of the spine is not achieved. The OmniLIF is designed to provide lordotic adjustment customized to the needs of every patient and promote bone fusion. The implant eliminates the need for highly invasive osteotomies that introduce large degrees of lordosis and bridges the gap between current innovation in the market. Some ALIF devices are stand-alone and some are expandable, but the OmniLIF is both. In addition, the OmniLIF is the only interbody that is adjustable up to 35 degrees for personalized correction in the lumbar spine.

    I worked with an Orthopedic surgeon to gain an understanding of the causes, implications, and corrective procedures surrounding loss of lumbar lordosis and sagittal imbalance. Based on research and analysis of the current market offerings, I worked to develop new, less invasive, yet more effective solutions to the problem.

    I primarily generated concepts for the internal mechanisms of the device and used Solidworks to generate our team's model.
    Additionally, I am in charge of the design and aesthetics of presentation materials, including our team logo and the renders on this page.

    First, I am in charge of the manufacturability and functionality of our device. I have over 2 years medical device design experience and used my mechanical design experience to transform our device from a conceptual model into a functional, manufacturable device. In addition to design work, I am the Marketing Director. The brand image and marketing materials are my responsibility.

    Our team was approached with this problem by an orthopedic surgeon looking for a solution to the loss of lumbar lordosis and sagittal imbalance in the spine. I gained understanding of the causes and the solutions to the problem, as well as conducted research on the market and prior art. I was part of a team that developed a novel device, that is less invasive than current solutions and possesses more correction ability. I contributed to the design concept, marketing, and engineering analysis for the device. Additionally, I was responsible for communicating with our superiors and our advisor over the course of the project.

    The team was approached with a problem by an Emory Orthopedic surgeon to provide a better solution to mediate sagittal imbalance in the lumbar region of the spine. Using literature and research, I developed design concepts along with the team to generate the best possible solution. I helped with the marketing of the OmniLift generating a powerpoint that was later turned into a demo video. Additionally, using my physics background, I helped complete the engineering analysis for the device.
