SPEEDARC™ Nitinol Compression Implant

Division: Trauma
Category: Nitinol Compression Implants

SPEEDARC Compression Implant is a superelastic shape memory fixation device that conforms to the sloping surfaces of the metaphyseal anatomy. This unique Continuous Active Compression implant is designed to provide fixation along the medial aspect of the metaphyseal flare of the proximal phalange of the Hallux while keeping the implant legs parallel to the transverse osteotomy line. Used 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.
