Become Part of Our Efforts

Physicians

We help physicians set up HIPAA compliant data collection for Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs), participate as an investigator or sub-investigator for a current study, or create and design an original research study.

Patients

We match patients seeking innovative methods to promote their own healing to clinical trials employing research-backed technology and innovations.

Companies

We connect companies that are interested in running clinical trials and gather high quality data to validate the safety and efficacy of their products. We are a site for IDEs and post-market trials for biologics and devices. 

 

Our Research

 

Current

Our ongoing commitment to functional research explores the safety and efficacy of the latest technologies in spinal surgery through prospective and retrospective studies. Our goal is to identify devices that most effectively improve patient outcomes using validated metrics and radiographic imaging.

As a clinical research site for various private practices, we hope to capture and utilize the wealth of data available in each clinic to advance future care through the research and development of new technologies, spinal devices, and biologics. We are actively recruiting and enrolling patients in six functional studies. More information can be found about each trial on ClinicalTrials.gov. 

  • Safety and Efficacy of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields as an Adjunct to Enhance Union in Conservatively Treated Type II Fractures of the Odontoid Process

  • A Multi-Center, Open-Label, Prospective Study of a PEMF device as Adjunctive Care following Cervical Fusion

  • A Multi-Center, Open-Label, Prospective Study of a PEMF device as Adjunctive Care following Lumbar Fusion

  • Prospective Clinical Evaluation of Standalone Cervical Interbody Fusion Device

  • Prospective Clinical and Radiographic Evaluation of PLIF using 3D-printed Titanium Lumbar Cage

  • Prospective, Multi-Center, Nonrandomized Study to Assess Posterolateral Lumbar Fusions Using Synthetic Bioactive Glass Morsels

 

 

Future Directions

Through collaborations with other research organizations, community partners, and small businesses, we are pursuing investigations into the following studies. We encourage and welcome interested partners who would like to join and contribute to our efforts to send inquiry emails to research@inifoundation.org.
