The patented Intellirod™ System3 includes a titanium/zirconia ceramic, strain sensing device, which includes radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, intended to enable access to strain measurement values, incorporating a passive transponder, inserter and scanner. The transponder attaches to any commercially available, corrective spinal system using 5.5 mm cobalt chrome or titanium alloy rods in corrective spinal surgeries. The transponder is used only to acquire rod strain values and a unique device identification code, which is read by the scanner, providing objective readings of the mechanical strain during the correction to be used in conjunction with standard of care clinical and radiographic assessments.
