About Ascendx Spine™
Based in Winter Park, Florida, Ascendx Spine™ is a medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of innovative orthopedic devices for the spine and trauma markets. Its initial focus is the treatment of a vertebral compression fracture (VCF). A VCF forces a vertebra to collapse and the spinal column above it to assume an abnormal forward curve, resulting in considerable back pain and a hunchbacked appearance.
