How is the Balloon deployed?
InSpace™ Balloon deployment is performed at the physician’s clinic with the patient positioned as in arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, mainly in Beach Chair or lateral decubitus positioning.

Deployment is achieved through a 5-step procedure.
Evaluation of the shoulder and tendon’s condition, determining if an irreparable rotator cuff tear is presented using standard subacromial arthroscopy.
Selection of the correct balloon size by measuring the subacromial space using an arthroscopic probe. Three balloon sizes are available (S/M/L).
The InSpace™ balloon is in-situ. The patient can usually go home the same day of the procedure. The rehabilitation period is shortened since NO major surgery or tendon repair is involved.
