Balance ACS (BACS®)

BACS provides solutions focused on achieving balance of the spine by addressing each anatomical vertebral segment with a 360-degree approach in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes, emphasizing Total Body Balance™ as an important component of surgical success.

Achieving Total Body Balance starts with the spine and addressing each independent vertebrae in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes. The ultimate goal is a neutral spine with the head balanced over the pelvis. Ensuring that each vertebral segment is properly aligned with the adjacent segments helps equalize the distribution of force, provide stability, and enhance energy preservation.


BACS System

BACS provides the necessary tools—from surgical preauthorization tools and preoperative planning
to 3D anatomical modeling and postoperative reporting—to facilitate quality patient outcomes and to support the perioperative process.

Educational Workshops & Trainings

K2M will host physician workshops on Balance ACS at leading spine conferences in the United States and internationally. These workshops will feature leading spine surgeons presenting on the latest research and clinical applications of the Balance ACS platform. Surgeons can also attend comprehensive trainings through K2M courses and other individualized opportunities.
