STUDY DESIGN Instrumented interbody implants were placed into the disc space of a motion segment in two baboons. During the animal's activities, implants directly measured in vivo loads in the lumbar spine by telemetry transmitter. OBJECTIVES Develop and test an interbody implant-load cell and use the implant to measure directly loads imposed on the lumbar spine of the baboon, a semiupright animal. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA In vivo forces in the lumbar spine have been estimated using body… CONTINUE READING
