Features Benefits
Bony ingrowth BIOCRYL RAPIDE Biocomposite Material promotes bony ingrowth at the implant site1-2
Rapid insertion Inserts approximately 2x faster than traditional interference screws3
Strong fixation Improved interdigitation of graft threads increases overall fixation strength by 25%3
Effortless bone engagement Unique Distal-tip requires 83% less effort to achieve bone engagement3
Robust yet gentle insertion Ease of bone engagement and lower insertion torque ensure robust insertion into hard bone with minimal torque transmission to soft tissue grafts and tendons
