Orchid’s titanium coating on PEEK differentiates us in the market. The technology was developed at Orchid Switzerland (formerly Alhenia) and is sought after by our customers for spinal implants.
The spine, or vertebral column, is a bony structure formed from the vertebrae. It consists of 24 articulating and 9 fused vertebrae in the sacrum and the coccyx. All the vertebrae are separated with an intervertebral disc composed of cartilage. It plays a very important role as a shock absorber for the impact of the body’s daily activities, and keeps the two vertebrae separated.
