Ghost Productions creates visually stunning animation for Zimmer Biomet's Tether System, a medical device that treats scoliosis without spinal fusion.


Ghost Productions medical animation studio produced for Zimmer Biomet a medical device marketing piece that highlights the Tether System.  
The Tether™ Vertebral Body Tethering System is different from the other surgical treatments for scoliosis (e.g. spinal fusion) because the spine is still able to bend and flex, rather than being fixed in place with the stiff metal rods needed for spinal fusion.

The benefits of The Tether when compared to spinal fusion is there may be a smaller incisions required with The Tether and thus less scarring, there may be less muscle and soft tissue disruption, and The Tether system is designed to allow for motion at the levels of treatment.

Ghost Productions, a leading medical animation studio, has created a visually stunning marketing piece for Zimmer Biomet's Tether System. This innovative medical device is designed to treat scoliosis without the need for spinal fusion. Unlike traditional treatments, the Tether System allows the spine to bend and flex, providing patients with greater mobility and flexibility. The animation highlights the benefits of the Tether System, including smaller incisions, less scarring, and less muscle and soft tissue disruption.

Ahead of The Curve - Tether a Caregiver's Story with Ghost Medical
October 25, 2021

"Discover Zimmer Biomet's Revolutionary Treatment for Scoliosis with "Ahead of the Curve" Animation Are you looking for innovative treatment options for scoliosis? Look no further than Zimmer Biomet's vertebral body tethering device, The Tether. Ghost Productions' story-driven character animation, "Ahead of the Curve," tells the inspiring story of Tara's mother and her research on different treatment options for scoliosis, ultimately leading her to The Tether. The Tether is an emerging treatment for a select patient population and is available through the FDA's humanitarian device exemption (HDE) pathway. This revolutionary treatment represents the first approval order for a humanitarian use device in spinal pediatrics within the last 15 years. With the recent removal of many semi-rigid stabilization systems that were historically used for AVBT, The Tether arrives at a critical time for continuation of care. Zimmer Biomet's mission is to improve the quality of life for people around the world, and The Tether is a prime example of this commitment. This collaboration between clinicians, the FDA, and Zimmer Biomet has given surgeons an important fusion-less scoliosis treatment option for their pediatric patients. The procedure gives kids the best option for maintaining spine mobility and reaching their full potential. To optimize patient outcomes, Zimmer Biomet and the FDA are finalizing a new clinical study for The Tether, partnering with the Harms Study Group, a worldwide cohort of surgeons with over 20 years of productivity who perform comprehensive, multi-center, prospective research studies focused on pediatric spinal deformity. The Tether - Vertebral Body Tethering System is designed to treat skeletally immature patients who require surgical treatment to obtain and maintain correction of progressive idiopathic scoliosis, with a major Cobb angle of 30 to 65 degrees whose osseous structure is dimensionally adequate to accommodate screw fixation, as determined by radiographic imaging. Patients who have failed bracing and/or are intolerant to brace wear may be selected for this treatment.
