Selection of polymer material in the design optimization of a new dynamic spinal implant
Lucie Monède-Hocquard, Michel Mesnard, Antonio Ramos and Olivier Gille

 
Abstract
    \"Dynamic stabilization\" systems have been developed in recent years to treat degenerative disorders of the spinal column. In contrast to arthrodesis (fusion), the aim here is to conserve intervertebral mobility to maximize comfort. When developing innovative concepts, many mechanical tests need to be carried out in order to validate the different technological solutions. The present study focuses on the B Dyn
