Important spine research for seat development at Grammer

10 years of the Grammer European Spine Journal Award.

The GRAMMER European Spine Journal Award began at the turn of the millennium and is now the spine research award with the largest purse anywhere in the world. For a decade now, it has been bestowed each year in collaboration with the European Spine Journal at the annual convention of the Spine Society of Europe.

The purpose of this award is to honor outstanding achievements in the field of spine research. For over a decade, GRAMMER has been cultivating this important contact with spine researchers and supporting their work. This close cooperation between science and business has generated many new insights and ideas that GRAMMER has channeled into developing new seats.

This year the work of four exceptional scientists from Switzerland was lauded. The 2008/2009 GRAMMER European Spine Journal Award went to Dr. Daniel Haschtmann and his team at the University of Berne. They identified and analyzed fundamental changes in spinal tissue subsequent to the fracture of a vertebral body. What they learned represents a significant milestone in advancing the treatment of vertebral fractures.
