Blending the Benefits of Titanium and PEEK
By preserving its PEEK roots, STALIF C-Ti™ exhibits a modulus of elasticity similar to bone.
In doing so, the device presents a reduced risk of subsidence relative to all-titanium cages.5
Additionally, STALIF C-Ti™ continues to maintain the radiolucent advantage of PEEK.
