SPEED™ Nitinol Memory Implant

Division: Trauma
Category: Nitinol Compression Implants

SPEED Compression Implant is a shape memory fixation device that delivers continuous active compression and high strength for enhanced stability during healing, for fracture and osteotomy fixation and joint arthrodesis of the hand and foot.

Indications for Use

  • Fracture and osteotomy fixation and joint arthrodesis of the hand and foot.
  • Fixation of proximal tibial metaphysis osteotomy.
  • Hand and foot 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.
