Unique translational movement

activL® from B.Braun is the lumbar disc prosthesis for the motion preserving treatment of degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine. The main objectives of the treatment are fast pain reduction and the preservation/restoration of segmental function and motion. The specific design of activL® allows the protection of the adjacent level. The unique translational movement of activL® is designed to minimize biomechanical stress at the facet joints and to avoid facet joint arthrosis in a medium- and long-term prospect.
