SPEED™ Hand & Wrist System

Division: Trauma
Category: Nitinol Compression Implants

The SPEED™ Hand & Wrist System, developed with the help of a team of leading hand surgeons is designed to make Nitinol hardware fixation as intuitive as possible. Most importantly, the surgeon can now determine the bridge and leg lengths needed PRIOR to opening an implant package. With easy-to-use Drilling Templates, an optional Sizing Guide, and an included Depth Gauge, the SPEED Hand & Wrist System redefines simplicity in the operating room.

Indications for Use

  • Fracture and osteotomy fixation and joint arthrodesis of the hand.
  • Hand bone fragment and osteotomy fixation and joint arthrodesis.
  • Fixation of small fragments of bone (i.e. small fragments of bone which are not comminuted to the extent to preclude staple placement). These fragments may be located in long bones such as the femur, fibula and tibia in the lower extremities; the humerus, ulna or radius in the upper extremities; the clavicle; and in flat bone such as the pelvis and scapula.
