Background and Challenges
Nuvasive sought Nectar Product Development to help create a revolutionary medical device for patients with Limb Length Discrepancy (LLD). This device is comprised of an intramedullary nail, locking screws, and reusable instruments that is used with an External Remote Controller (ERC) to non-invasively lengthen the femur and tibia.
The ERC project was presented to Nectar with the requirements of being functional, comfortable for the user, and non-threatening for children to use. Nectar seamlessly and effectively created an innovative design for the ERC that considers all user types.
